I'm a 32yo guy who has just had my third hospitalisation for cellulitis in my leg. First time was about 8 years ago and was by far e worst. 2 months off work including 3 weeks in hospital. 2nd time was May this year, in the other leg. Not too bad, 5 days in hospital and a week at home and I was back to normal.
This time it was back in the original leg, and a week in hospital and 2 weeks at home. My problem now is the swelling that just won't go away! I have a compression tight that I wear and it does help, but standing with my legs together there's still a huge difference. I am struggling to find a solution.
The stranger thing is that this year I've lost a ton of weight and I'm the healthiest I've probably been in years yet I've managed to get it twice in 6 months. I know it's from athletes foot which I am religiously treating but still so afraid of it happening again.
My diet is pretty good, I don't drink anymore and I'm back to the gym again. I'm not sure what else to do, especially about the swelling and redness. Can anybody suggest anything that I can try?
