Cellulitis

I've just been to the Doctor as I have had pain, swelling, redness and heat in my thigh since last Thursday. Turns out I have Cellulitis.

In the past 4 days it has spread from the size of a 10p piece to practically the front of my left thigh! I can't believe how much it hurts, and the heat coming off this thing is as bad as sunburn!

We have just been to the chemist to pick up my antibiotics and I'm off to rest now as I feel a little euck! I am assured that the infection will respond quickly to the antibiotics - usually within taking 4 tablets. The nurse has kindly drawn a lovely outline around the infected area so that we can check if it's spreading or not.

More soon and maybe even a photo! Just need to find the batteries for the camera. Lol!
