I started with extreme fatigue, then vomiting, temperature and uncontrollable shivering. It wasn't until the next day that I discovered a hot, red rash on my leg that quickly spread from ankle to knee. I was given oral antibiotics at out of hours doctors. The next day I was worse, severe pain, temperature and delirious. My gp admitted me to hospital where it was difficult to obtain bloods or insert a cannula due to veins not being accessible. I was finally treated with iv antibiotics for 4 days in hospital and 3 days outpatients. The pain and swelling in my leg had not improved so on return to gp restarted oral antibiotics. Now seeing some improvements after nearly three weeks. This infection came out of nowhere, no bite or skin issue. It is extremely painful and made me feel very ill. I understand from my own research it can return once you've had it. My gp has requested a blood test in 4 weeks time. Anyone else out there with it, has it recurring or has any tips on dealing with cellulitis please comment.
