I was diagnosed with cellulitis for the first time on Wednesday when I attended a lymphoedema clinic another first. Three years ago I was measured for some compression bandages and duly received them and that was that for three years, until I joined this site and found that I should have been going to a lymphoedema clinic.
When I went with my bandages on, I knew that my legs were red and sore but I had been doing a room move the day before and thought it was my osteoarthritis telling me that I had done to much.
The nurses said that it was almost certainly started by the treatment of my ulcerative toe which is being treated at the podiatry clinic. The podiatry clinic before this had said that it was going to take a long time to treat.
I am on a 12 day course of antibiotics and I have have had fluid leaking which has stopped but I still have blisters of fluid, some of which have burst others are getting bigger.
Do I leave them or pop them with a sterile blade
Do I go back to the podiatry clinic to continue my treatment considering I wasn't able to wear shoes until they started the treatment. But risking it triggers another bout of cellulitis.
Why does all my food taste horrible
As I have stopped leaking fluid should I start wearing my compression bandages in the next few days
