In brief: Get seen now

25 year old gentleman taking Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) for unknown autoimmune condition presents with soft tissue infections of unknown duration causing pain and limitation of motion.
Unsure if fever is present. I think you should be seen urgently, emergently if you have fever. Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) will suppress your immune system and you need to be seen ASAP. You may need incision, drainage, antibiotics, pain control.
