I am being treated for a leg infection. My GP has given me Klaricid (clarithromycin) 250mg tablets. I have taken 8 tablets and there has been no improvement in my condition. My leg does not hurt but there is a burning, itching sensation and it is swollen and red. In February I was diagnosed with gout and the infection has followed soon after the gout was cured....at first I thought I was experiencing an allergic reaction to the gout medication.
I have had cellulitis before and was hospitalised. On that occasion the redness extended up to the knee and I could not weight-bear because of the pain. This time the leg does not hurt except the ankle is very stiff but this burning, itching sensation is awful and is stopping me from sleeping.
Anyone had a similar experience where an infection is a burning itching sensation and how long before it was cured? I am allergic to penicillin by the way.
