What you suppose to do after subcutaneous gluteal cellulitis abscess drainage? On bactrim.What to watch out for of side effects also? Thank you drs.

Wound care: Make sure the wound stays clean and moist, and if it was drained surgically, change the packing at least daily. Watch out for return if the red skin surrounding the area. Watch out for fevers. Make sure to follow up with the doctor that is treating you, or your primary care within a week or so. Sooner if you get worse. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Is cellulitis after kindergarten shots normal?

Is cellulitis after kindergarten shots normal?

Can happen: If done properly the occurrence of an infection should be rare. Remember however that cellulitis refers to inflammation and does not have to have an infectious component at all. In your example this is more likely the case from the immune reaction developing to the injected substance. That reaction is mediated by cells and proteins that cause inflammation. ...Read more

I was treated for cellulitis with antibiotic, but after weeks it's still swollen. Is it normal?

Should i wear compression stockings after having cellulitis on my leg?

Should i wear compression stockings after having cellulitis on my leg?

OK after resolution: Compression stocking is useful to help reduce edema (swelling) of the legs. However, if you have active cellulitis (infection of the skin), the pressure from compression stocking may cause further inflammation. Instead, during an active infection, i generally recommend leg elevation to reduce swelling. Once the infection is resolved, then you can resume using you're compression stocking. ...Read more

I got diagnosis with cellulitis at the corner of my lips.  It flares up routinely after being diagnosis in dec.  What antibiotic would be helpful now?

Glutamine and Vit B2: It sounds like stomatitis with inflammation rather than cellulitis. Use l-glutamine 2gm twice daily for 2 weeks with riboflavin 100mg three times for 2 weeks to heal mucosa. Do aloe cleanse 3 day of 1 bottle 32 oz aloe followed by 4 day of activated b complex by isotonic do this cycle x 3 to heal mucosa completely. ...Read more
