I had cellulitis about 2 months ago. the bottom half of my lower leg is still a little pnk from it, and the bite that seemingly started it remains, though it hadn't been bothering me in 2 months. I took 2 weeks of antibiotics, (2 different types because the first type made me sick.) The second was penicillin.
I wasn't convinced it was gone but my doctor said it would be fine now, and sometimes the discoloration takes a while to get rid of, or remains forever.
But I was noticing pain when I put one leg over the other yesterday, and before bed noticed that a part of the pink had become warm and bright red. In the morning I could get a better look and it doesn't seem to stem from the bite but another red dot, and it's flaring outwards to the back of my leg and upwards a little.
Is this the cellulitis coming back, again?
I'm terrified to be honest. Is this normal? Is this surely cellulitis back again?
Because surely you can't just keep taking anti-biotics because that will surely just make the infection stronger if they are clearly failing to kill it?
