What is a minor ailment and how do I know if I have one?
A minor ailment is a health condition that can generally be self-diagnosed and self-managed. It may even improve on its own over time. However, despite the name "minor", minor ailments can have a major impact on your well-being and may sometimes require prescription medication.
Examples of minor ailments that your Pharmacist can assess and prescribe treatments for include:
- Seasonal Allergies
- Insect Bites
- Athlete's Foot
