Oh dear, sorry to hear that.

You need to go to your local centro de salud, that's probably your best bet.

You can find details of your local one here.

Do you have your medical card?  If not, just turn up with proof that you pay your social security and copy of NIE and I think that should be enough.  They will issue you with a card if you haven't got one.  It's been a long time since I did it so can't quite remember the process.

The number of the centre is on the page I linked to above so if your Spanish is good enough maybe give them a call before going down there.

Hope that helps and hope you feel better soon.

 It may surprise you, it certainly did surprise us when we discovered, that in our area anyway you can buy antibiotics over the counter in the Farmacia. Our friends around us do this and one even sent them to her daughter in London when she had no time to visit a doctor there.

I would not recommend it but it gives you something to think about.

Hope you find a solution and are both well soon.
