Cellulitis on the lower back and its treatment - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
Doctor : How can I help you?
User : I was diagnosed with cellulitis on sunday a.m. on my lower back, upper buttock.i started keflex every 6 hrs & my condition started to improve. i developed small abcess that we were able to drain & most of the hard swollen tissue in the area was soft again. However, just today, I have developed round, hard lump in the affected area that is a little numb & sensitive to the touch. Should I be concerned? Is there something I should do? I would like some advice before simply returning to the ER. Thank you!
