Hi , exactly 12 days ago I made myself groin abscess and while in pain I waited full 8 days before looking for medical help. I vent to A&E last Tuesday and doctor used ultrasound to look into groin area and said lucky I dont have DVT ( my whole left leg is bigger then right one) and gave me antibiotics called Flucloxacillin and I been taking those regularly not missing singe dose but pain is persistent and I am still having temperature of 37 and every night I wake up completely wet with sweat that I have to change sheets and t shirts , my groin is painful which I understand but what I dont understand is why my leg all the way to knee is so painful? I am afraid he misdiagnosed my case... i am afraid of blood clots and I am afraid of sepsa. I am thinking after almost 5 days of taking antibiotics i should be better then how I feel stil unable to walk for longer and still taking paracetamol every 4,5 hours or pain is unbearable? You think I should go to hospital and look for another opinion? Thanks
