Have a bug bite it is now inflammed red hard and warm to touch. Very itchy and painful should I be worried. I have a history of lupus & cellulitis?
Norma/Concerning: When our skin sustains an injury, immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) for about 48-72 hours. This is the body increasing blood flow to the area to bring healing factors and is normal healing. If it gets worse over time (increase in pain, fevers, chills, more redness), then it may be infected or the lupus may be reacting. If so, then seeing the doc may be your best bet. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: Mrsa is a resistant form of a common bacteria that lives on the skin. If you have a break/cut in skin you might get infection from mrsa. Cdiff is a different bacteria that might live in your colon. When you take antibiotics for another infection like cellulitis, you can kill off good bacteria in your colon that keeps cdiff in check and allow it more "housing space" to thrive and cause infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
