I want to thank everyone in advance for any help you can give.

Here is the situation I've had my sulcata for about 2 years with no trouble... good eater plenty of room to roam the usual. Yesterday when i picked her up I heard the infamous clicking or popping sound you always hear about when people talk about RNS or a upper respiratory tract infection. I watched her for a while and there is no runny nose but i did notice one little bubble come out of her nostril. Here is where the help is needed....I was let go from my job a few months ago and have no money (may even lose the house) but i want to treat my tortoises infection. Is there any antibiotic or treatment I can give without having to take her to the vet? If there is how do I dose her and where can I buy it? from a website or store??

Again thank you so much for the help.
