Parafarmacia - amenity/healthcare=pharmacy / shop=chemist

As the title suggests, I am asking about the preferred tagging scheme for a parafarmacia. I have node 7486909410 as an example.

I would tag a farmacia (pharmacy) as amenity/healthcare=pharmacy and a parafarmacia as shop=chemist, but I would like to know if you guys agree or if you have a different point of view / preference.

As per the wiki, shop=chemist is a place that sells chemical products for personal hygiene or house cleaning. A parafarmacia instead is like a farmacia, but cannot sell medicines that require a prescription. So, maybe, the correct tagging schema is amenity=pharmacy + dispensing=no.


Okay, thank you for the input. Next year I’ll revert my change to the parafarmacia that I edited.
