Isn't this special???

Finally went to the clinic yesterday..
My right foot has been swollen and
painful.. Only to find out that I
have cellulitis. I had never heard of this
until yesterday. Oh joy , lucky me ,
something else to add to my list of
"strange & unusual" things my body
will or will not do.
******
What is cellulitis? What are symptoms of cellulitis?
*****
Cellulitis is a spreading bacterial infection of the skin
and tissues beneath the skin. Cellulitis usually
begins as a small area of tenderness, swelling, and
redness. As this red area begins to enlarge, the person
may develop a fever—sometimes withchills
and sweats—and swollen lymph nodes
("swollen glands")near the area of infected skin.
*****
Unlike
impetigo, which is a very superficial skin
infection, cellulitis refers to an infection also involving
the skin's deeper layers: the dermis and subcutaneous
tissue. The main bacteria involved in cellulitis
are Staphylococcus ("staph"), the same bacteria
that cause many cases of impetigo. Occasionally, other
bacteria may cause cellulitis as well.

So does this mean no more going barefoot??

I mean, we all know I have a small collection

of shoes, but does this mean

I will actually have to wear them??

*****

This is very painful and right now the

only shoes I can wear are crocks.

So I am on antibiotics for the next 10 days
