Common Questions and Answers about Medicinenet cellulitis article


Avatar n tn My husband has diabeties and gets cellulitis because usually a diabetic's immune system becomes weak. If the meds he is on are not working he needs to go back and see his Doctor, personally I would take him to hospital as cellulitis is very painful and spreads quite rapidly. A Specialist treating my husband once mentioned to me that if my husband was going to contract cellulitis it would most likely come back about the same time every year.
Avatar n tn For possible causes google rectal bleeding and click onto one of the many sites - the Medicinenet site is particularly informative. Then you will be better informed when you discuss with your doctor. If the doctor's diagnosis is vague ("...well it looks as if it might be one of the minor causes such as anal fissure haemorrrohids etc.....") you may wish to request a colonoscopy.
Avatar m tn Afternoon. I have had cellulitis in my nose for over a month.... took Bactrim, Clindamycin, and another 5 days of Bactrim.. which didn't help in the first place... but... i have this swollen membrane (i guess) from the tip of my nose about 1/2 inch back... it always feels like it is going to swell up again.... with no insurance another 125.00 is not what I want to pay since it seems like none of that helped anyway... anybody have any thoughts on this one???

Avatar m tn I have had cellulitis twice in the last eight months and the lymph nodes under my arms are swollen to the size of golf balls and very painful. My dr says that it's a result of the cellulitis and I will have to go on periodic antibiotic injections until the swelling goes down. What next?
Avatar f tn s friends, it seemed fine and then two days later started getting really bad, well an iv for seven days later... Turns out I got cellulitis. I thought it was a fluke so I got another one done by him and same thing. After that I haven't had anything for a few years. Now bring to last year... I popped a pimple and ended up with cellulitis really bad on my face... Which happened two more times after that.

Avatar f tn Just found this online, doesn't seem to have a political axe to grind either for or against Lyme; takes a neutral point of view. This is part of a longer article. I searched "lyme uveitis" and got this and other articles that may be helpful. This part of a much longer article. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [As usual, take out all the space and deleted the square brackets] http: // emedicine. medscape.
Avatar m tn On January 16th, after popping an ingrown hair on my shaft, I developed fever/chills overnight, and my penis shaft swelled up tremendously in a few hours (all symptoms of cellulitis). No sores, just swollen. Doctor said he was certain it was cellulitis, and prescribed antibiotics which fixed everything. After doing some reading, I found that cellulitis can affect people with HIV because of their weakened immune system. I guess it is the timing of all this that has me scared.
Avatar f tn My mother was diagnosed with breast cellulitis. Does this mean she could have breast cancer? She has had silicone implants in her for 25 years may this be the cause?
Avatar f tn I suggest that you type rectal bleeding into google and click on one of the many descriptive sites. The Medicinenet one is particularly informative. This should prepare you for a discussion with a specialist G.I. doctor - always assuming that you have posted this question because you are suffering from blood ex rectum??

Avatar f tn Is the antibiotic you are on not working for the cellulitis MRSA? Cellulitis takes a while to clear up as it can be deep in the tissues. If the treatment they giving your for your cellulitis is working then if you did have it in the knee it would be working on that too. What antibiotic are they giving you? If it is a topical for the cellulitis you may need oral or even IV. Call the doctor that is taking the other ortho's place and ask to be seen.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your reply. I did go in yesterday, (day 4) for a re-opening of the root canal which had not been finalized and still has not. The Dr. could not get the tooth to drain through itself but another Dr. advisor said that he thought the infection had dispersed so the Incision and Drain wasn't done. I started Amoxicillin yesterday and my 24 hour period isn't quite up yet. (Two more hours.) They said that the medicine wouldn't work for at least 24 hours.
Avatar m tn How long would it take for a swollen lymph node to return to normal after a cellulitis infection in the neck? I still feel the area to be a bit swollen and it's been about 6 months since the infection.
Avatar n tn It has been over 3 years since I had cellulitis from injections in my neck and base of skull. I also have experienced chronic fatigue and a general decline in my overall health. At first my whole body swelled up. I was on IV antibiotics then switched to oral for a few months. Any insight would be appreciated.
