Hi, I'm new and found this by pure chance. I have cellulitis in my lower leg, which started off last Sunday, I guessed it was this as I've had it four times before in my arm. Went to GP on Monday first thing and got Flucloxacillin 1 four times a day, normally my arm would go down within 3-4 days but here I am day 6 and still feeling awful. On Wed, in the wee small hours, I ended up going to out of hours GP at local hospital as what had started as one red patch had spread to four large patches, which were all joining up. They gave me another antibiotic to take (2 -4 times daily) on top of the other. Although swelling gone down a lot in the upper part of leg the red patch closest to my ankle is still hot and painful and my foot is swelling and feeling numb today. I have Lymphoedma but in my trunk, breast and arm, following lots of surgery for breast cancer, then finally mastectomy but didn't think this would affect my leg (although it is on same side of body this time). Sorry this is long, but wondered if any healthcare professionals can advise if the redness/swelling should still be as bad on day 6 (I religiously take pills at 6 hourly intervals and elevate leg as much as possible). Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
