Do any of you get cellulitis in the affected rsd area I have rsd in my left...
From what I've read about cellulitis, people are prone to getting it who have weak immune systems and poor circulation - which RSD causes both so I'd say your doc needs to read up on his facts.
I have had cellulitis several times... Not necessarily in the original site of injury, I am prone to it & been hospitalised & taken to theatre for surgery to clean out too. It can be very dangerous in fact fatal if not caught & treated properly.
Yes, it's awful and painful . I've had surgery a couple years ago to drain it. I'm on antibiotics now so hoping it will heal up soon. I have a broadway play tomorrow and then Monday is halloween with my kids! Thanks for the advice!
My problem is I'm allergic to the best suited antibiotics to treat this bactrim, sulphurs, so I need a cocktail of 4 others usually intravenously to address. I'm glad it sounds like you've got this under control & once you've had a couple of times at least know what to look out for & get onto it as quickly as you can. I always keep a supply of the oral antibiotics just in case to get a head start if I need to go to ER. It can creep up on you very quickly. Enjoy your Halloween
Thanks, you too! Last year when i had this and it got so bad, was because I was pregnant and I was not able to use antibiotic that I usually do. I keep antibiotics at home just incase anything happens to me with cellulitis. Hoping this time isn't like last time! It does creep up, la ssd the night I noticed swelling and within hours it was out of control red and seikk
Thanks. Yeah it did seem odd to me that I've gotten it only in my hand and foot that have rsd
