I am writing again re my 79 year old husband. He finished his third course of antibiotics 10 days ago. His legs were still very red but nurse said that this should fade gradually. Over the weekend, he has developed yellow skin round his ankles and they almost look like little blisters - there is some clear liquid coming from the skin and his calves are very swollen.
We are seeing the Geriatric Consultant this afternoon for other things. It is quite a long journey. I do not know if he should wear socks or if this would rub the skin. I have no bandages available at the moment. I am going to ask the Consultant to look at the skin because it looks really yellow and if there are blisters oozing then surely there is a risk of infection? With Easter coming, I would need to get more antibiotics quite quickly.
Has anyone else had yellowness and blisters? It is clear liquid coming out. .
