Morning all. After a visit to the out of hours GP on Saturday, it was confirmed that cellulitis has taken hold of my left leg. She gave me Clarithromycin 500mg twice daily and advised if no improvement by Tuesday then to go to my GP for bloods to test the infection markers. Since Saturday my leg has become agony as the cellulitis had took hold. I can barely put it down in any position and the red spots/ blisters seem to be spreading.
I'm not after any advice, I just felt the need to vent. While my husband and family are sympathetic, they cannot understand the pain that cellulitis can cause. I'm supposed to be in work tomorrow and while I have an office job where I have a special chair and leg rest, I'm not sure that's going to happen. Hoping that these antibiotics kick in soon so I don't require a hospital stay.
From your description above, you should be sitting in A&E right now! Do not wait until tomorrow. Oral antibiotics are not working. Please don't wait - the implications are unthinkable.
