Minor Ailments

Dales Pharmacists are qualified to assess and treat minor ailments.

A minor ailment is a short-term, less serious medical condition that does not typically require blood work or lab tests. Examples include cold sores, mild acne, heartburn, hay fever, fungal skin infections, and yeast infections.

Our pharmacists are trained to assess your common condition and prescribe a prescription medication or make a recommendation for an over-the-counter medication. If the pharmacist believes your condition is more serious and requires follow-up, they will refer you to a doctor.
