Just a simply thing really.
I consulted a pharmacist today because a blister on my foot had become very sore and inflamed and I wondered if it was infected.
Pharmacist told me that indeed it was and should not leave it until after the weekend, as it didn’t look very good at all - I am on holiday - she said I needed antibiotic and what a shame that she could not prescribe it yet - but the government is planning to allow pharmacist to prescribe antibiotics soon.
I then had to go to the local hospital with a drop in minor injury centre. The triage nurse said immediately - no not infected, but leave off the dressing and let it dry - she asked another clinician who said the same. It is already beginning to look better.
So - if said pharmacist had the ability to prescribe antibiotics, I would have taken them needlessly and it would not have done the trick anyway.
Makes you think.
