I've got superficial phylebitis. I've had it a few weeks now. Unfortunately it got infected so i had to take a course of antibiotics.
It was so painful last friday i had to go to A&E where they tested me for DVT. Luckily it came back clear but the only way it can clear up quicker is by taking anti-inflammatorys. The doctor prescribed me Ibuprofen Forte 10% gel but i'm too scared to apply it to me thigh. I've always stayed away from NSAID's so i don't know how it will effect me.
But i want the pain of my leg to go away.
What should i do?
