Was ivdu now clean 2y. Painful memories, hate myself. Can i not tell new doc abt history of related hospital stay (cellulitis) so i can move on?
Unwise: Your doc should be professional enough to not judge your past indiscretions. If not- get another. I believe it is important for your health to not hold back any past issues-- while many new issues may be unrelated, there are, for example, particular infections which are more common in patients who have used IV drugs, and so it may be important for your health to fully disclose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Was admitted to hospital w cellulitis. Home now w nausea fever chills and sweats. Is that because of infection or did i pick up the flu?
Difficult to say: It could be that the cellulitis is not getting better. I would follow-up with your treating provider for a check up, so that they can look at the area of cellulitis to see if it is better or worse. In the mean time, continue to take the medications you were prescribed when you were discharged from the hospital, unless your doctor tells you to stop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Go back to doctor: Asap. Without knowing the actual organism involved i can only tell you that most cases of cellulitis are caused by strep pyogenes or staph aureus. Two bad acting bugs and ones that have the capacity to be highly destructive of normal issues and potentially life-threatening. You need to see somebody now! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
