Cellulitis on my foot 4 days ago, it traveled on my inner leg to mid calf. The swelling and redness is gone, but my foot & leg still hurt. Normal?

What's the cause ?: Cellulitis is basically a visible inflammation (itis) of the skin and soft tissues (red, hot, swollen and tender) .

I have small hickey-looking rashes on my left leg. One on outside thigh and 2 on inner thigh. I've also had back ache and stomach pains(constipation)?

I have small hickey-looking rashes on my left leg. One on outside thigh and 2 on inner thigh. I've also had back ache and stomach pains(constipation)?

Pic worth 1000 words: A digital pic of the spots would be much easier to diagnose. They could be anything from insect bites to an allergic skin rash. Doubt that the stomach symptoms have much to do with spots on your leg. If they get larger, travel to the other side, become more plentiful in number, or start getting swollen etc. you will need to see a doctor. ...Read more

I have hemihypertrophy on my right leg. One lump on knee two on right side of leg. Searing pain in calf plus pitting edema in ankle. Is this urgent?

I have hemihypertrophy on my right leg. One lump on knee two on right side of leg. Searing pain in calf plus pitting edema in ankle. Is this urgent?

Could be serious.: Hemihypertrophy can mean a difference in length of the leg as well as girth of the leg. If you have suddenly noticed a difference in girth with searing calf pain and pitting edema, you need to go to the ER immediately because of the possibility of a blood clot. I believe in playing it safe since failure to treat could have devastating consequences. ...Read more

With : With multiple joint problems that have spanned years, you may be developing some kind of arthritic condition. The other thing that comes to mind is lime disease, or some sort of infection from an insect bite. Your best starting point is your primary care physician, who can order blood tests and get x-rays of these painful joints, and perhaps then refer you to a rheumatologist (in the case of an arthritic condition) or an infectious diseases specialist (in the case of an insect bite that caused an infection). ...Read more

If there is no swelling, heat or redness, one may wish to ice the knee, take some Ibuprofen type medications for pain and rest the joint as much as possible for a few days. If this doesn't work, get seen by pcp or ortho doc. ...Read more
