Wondering if you could pass on your experience with this damn celulitus, i recently came back from India Goa,with this infection .The GP said was caused through suspected mosquito bites,probably they had been some where dirty before they had bitten me.I was given Flucloxacillin 500mg x 4pd, and zinc bandages to wear on both lower parts of the legs as both were seriously affected.The next day i was in so much pain i went to A&E they advised to not use the bandage, they also upped the dose to 1000mg x 4xpd.Nearly two weeks after i,m still on antibiotics,as i was getting all tingling and burning now above the knee into the thigh,as well as in lower legs.Did you have the burning sensation ? is this normal to what this infection causes ? I really can,t seem to find answers on line or from GP.
The GP did say on my last visit which was Friday that the infection had caused all the blood vessels to burst in my right leg,leaving it quite angry looking and when i stand to long it turns dark reddish purple.
Hope to hear from you soon,
