User avatar Hello,
I know of no such resource. Usually you have to see a doctor locally for accurate assessment and diagnosis before prescriptions can be issued. Once you have the prescription, online resources are available for filling it.

If you need help finding a physician, call your local hospital for a referral.

Best wishes.
