Hi I have secondary leg lymphoedema and also PMR and diabetes 2.
Last week I suffered a bout of cellulitis (infection entered skin via a small puncture caused when I got too near a thorny bush (I was initially unaware)--I WAS wearing trousers!) and a GP prescribed Clarythromycin 500mg 2D. The irony comes this week because not only has the medication removed the infection from my leg it has, in the process, greatly reduced lymph swelling from my legs AND, as a bonus , appears to have bump-started my adrenals for I am still on 4mg prednisolone daily but without the overall fatigue and intermittent cramping. Yey!
