Monday night Tuesday morning I felt a hotness again in my shin...First thing on Tuesday morning got an emergency appointment at my GP. He took one look and confirmed it was the cellulitis. I would need a radical treatment of very strong penicillin. Prescibed 500mg multiplied by 2 of FLUCLOXACILLIN to be taken 4 times a day for 7 days. 250mg PHENOXYMETHYLPENICILLIN multplied by 2 taken 4 times a day for 7 days.

I have been laid in bed for the past few days as it has been a case of wake take medication then falling back to sleep.

I am now starting to feel a little better, but have decided once I finish medication to go back to GP to make sure infection is clear
