I have been diagnosed with cellulitis in my lower left

I have been diagnosed with cellulitis in my lower left leg. I have been given I have been given levofloxacin 750mg po, qd for 10 days. The oxycodone that was prescribed, it made me feel weird and spacy after the first one I took. I took the second one 4 hrs later, and from the waist down on the right side of my body went completely numb. I was even more spacey in the head. After this episode, I have not taken another one. The burning is very intense and the area is extremely tender. I cannot take hydrocodone. I also experienced excessive itching in my scalp. I am a heart patient, with a stint in the aorta and have been on Plavix since the surgery in August of 2017. Is there any other pain killer that can be prescribed to help with the extreme pain of cellulitis?

I was diagnosed with cellulitis in October of 2016 and took two prescriptions of antibiotics. When diagnosed, I had swelling and puffiness around my left eye. The antibiotics quelled the swelling and puffiness but I seem to still have some sympthons of the cellulitis because the left side of my face close to my eye feels stressed(for lack of better description). What should I do and/or what kind of doctor should I see?

My brother has no insurance and was recently diagnosed with cellulitis on his lower leg. He had a scan to rule out blood clot which fortunately was negative. He has taken his full dose of antibiotics and the swelling has been significantly reduced. The skin on his leg is still red (albeit less red) and purple. He is concerned that this discoloration will not go away. Please advise.
