  3. Hi Dr Rajesh I seem to have a big fat abscess infection on my ankle feet. Now I remember when I visited India in 2013, I got a abscess infection on the side of my stomach from the dirty hotel sheets. To make a long story short, my husband took me to an Ayurvedic clinic in Manali for a cure. And they gave me a white patch with holes in it and you peel off the backing of it and you place it over the infected skin. AND BELIEVE ME, in some hours, after I placed that white patch they gave me over that infection in my skin, believe me the infection started to leak and get wet and it worked so good. MY QUESTION IS, what is the name of that white patch with holes in it that you place over the infected skin and WHERE CAN I BUY IT
