Watery Itching On The Back Of The Head
Good night, my child is 2 years 7 months, his head was originally a small red spot, long time it was fused and runny, I brought it to the puskesmas but only given medicine to drink, no ointment or other external medicine. It’s been 2 days taking the medicine with no results. Even worse. What is the solution, if I may ask for a prescription drug so that I can buy the nearest pharmacy, because the current situation is not possible to see a specialist. The doctor was far from my village.
