Hello. I noticed a bit ago that my fiancé has dried yellow fluid on his leg. The leg has a few sores from when he was itchy but they are healing and aren’t infected. The same leg also tends to swell and is a bit swollen today. There’s a small spot where the clear/yellow fluid is leaking from his leg. I of course want him to go to the ER but he does not want to go. Any of you have this happen before? If so, what was it?
Edit to add- His leg usually only swells when he’s been at his desk for more than a few hours, which he was yesterday and last night.
Hi there, I don't really know much about leaking legs other than it can happen when fluid build up splits the skin. It doesn't sound good to me and I think that he should see someone fairly quickly. Hopefully someone will answer you that knows more about this kind of thing. All the best to you. Alf
Hi Alf, thank you for commenting and the well wishes! His leg is barely swollen, it’s been much worse but I know things can go downhill very quickly so I’m worried and watching it (worried and watching shall be my epitaph haha) there isn’t any splitting, that’s what’s really got me confused. Sorry for rambling, you’ll see that I tend to do that when I’m worried.
I would imagine( I may be wrong) that he has to be careful that it doesn't become infected. Can you ring the 111 service and get some advice? It's obviously worrying you and you have to go with your gut instinct as in most cases gut instinct turns out to be right.
I agree with Alf, either go and see someone or phone 111, this should put your mind at rest. Love and hugs Lynne xxxx
