Receive prescription for cefexime but don't have insurance and it's expensive. Can I get prescription for generic or metronizole?

The theory behind a H2 antihistamine is that chronic warts are sensitive to moisture and PH changes. Tagamet (cimetidine) will lower gastric Acid over time causing overall body PH to increase slightly. Use with a topical wart remover. Also keep feet dry. ...Read more
