Cellulitis in ankle/calf. ER visit had IV antibiotics and pills, swelling went down but redness has worsened and moved completely to top of foot?

You may want. To revisit the ER, it sounds as if the foci of the infection is in the foot and you may have an abcess that needs to be drained. I would ask them if that is possible to bring it to their attention. The cellulitis had to start somewhere, perhaps between your toes secondary to a fungal infection but I would go back.
