Your physician: The best place is your regular medical doctor. If they are not available then there may be an urgent care walk-in clinic in your neighborhood. You need to be evaluated by a doctor to make sure that it is not some other problem instead. Do not self medicate, this can mask a problem and make it more difficult to treat.
