I have primary LE in my lower right leg. I was diagnosed Tuesday with cellulitis in it and also a kidney infection. I've never had it nor have I ever had pain in that leg. Only mild aching discomfort after a lot of walking.
What's new, redness, a disperse rash on the inner part of the lower leg from ankle to knee, pain on the opposite side that feels like a combination between a surface burn and a bruise. It's very tender to the touch. I was running a low grade fever, having severe chills and then sweats that resolved once the antibiotics were begun.
My question, is that a normal pain for cellulitis? Does it take the redness a while to go away? Itching has increased, but I figure that's a part of the healing progress. My doctor's follow up appointment isn't until Monday and I don't want to go back into emergency. I have no fever. My only issue besides the redness and pain on the surface of the affected leg is nausea and lack of appetite from the 2 antibiotics I'm on.
