My husband was diagnosed with cellulitis 2/9/15 when he went to see specialist re his Parkinsons meds, he had scan next day to rule out DVT and was prescribed Flucoxacillin 2 4 times daily, followed by another dose 1 4 times daily followed by clarithromycin 1 twice daily was back to see specialist 29/9/15 who then prescribed clindamycin 1 4 times daily for 7 days if these dont work then he has to go into hospital for antibiotics IV. The last time he had cellulitis it lasted 2 weeks but its nearly 5 weeks and he is still suffering, his knees are really swollen altho his legs are not as swollen as in the beginning. Does anyone have an idea how long this lasts, he also has type 2 diabetes on insulin and tablets.
