In brief: You bet

Get reevaluated. WHAT IS THE DIAGNOSIS???? We do not treat cellulitis with Unna boot.
We do not treat stasis dermatitis with antibiotics. We do not treat phlebitis with either of these. Ruptured long plantaris muscle and erythromalalgia are treated in yet other ways. GET ANOTHER OPINION. Usually the best for this is a dermatologist.
