I Wanna Dip My Balls In It!

A guy came in with a prescription. The doc told him he could get it over the counter so I showed him the product. I reassured him that the Lotrimin by prescription was the same as the OTC version.

I handed him the 12 gram package. He was instructed to use it twice daily for seven days. He showed great concern that there was not enough in the tube. I told him that depending on how big the area of application was the tube would last several days.

He said it was for his balls so I again stated that depending on how big the area of application was the tube would last several days. He got the bigger tube. Then we had a nice discussion about how the same fungus that attaches to feet also loves the warm moist area around his balls but the cream could treat both areas if needed.

I also told him to resist the urge to scratch...

two notes,

my balls would require more than 12gm.

you should have gave him a KY coupon from the last post in case he did scratch....

Oh come on, you should have offered to help him apply it. What kind of uncaring pharmacist are you, anyway?
