I have primary lymphoedema of the left leg and have recently had a bout of cellulitis brought on, I suspect, by infection getting in by cracked skin under my little toe. Any suggestions please as to prevention? I have full-length hosiery for the leg supplied through the clinic in St George’s hospital, Tooting, London. Following the cellulitis, I have started to use the foot portion they also supplied, which I’d previously (and mistakenly) not bothered with (as it was too much trouble). I use Diprobase as an emollient and have started to use Savlon on the crack, which is an anti-septic but also a skin-softener and (I hope) healing agent.
Any advice, please, fellow sufferers?
