I ve been told that I may have cellulitis, I ve been to the emergency room twice and admitted to the hospital on Wednesday and release this evening! The doctors still are not sure if what I have is cellulitis. Here are my symptoms chills all the time, swelling on both legs and feet, my skin is crusty and very dark, and my skin leaks and blisters! I ve had these symptoms for more than a month and with all the blood test, ultrasound, eggs I still have no clear diagnosis. What can be wrong with me that I seem to be getting worse and I just got of the hospital this evening?

I have what I believe is cellulitis on my right shin. The symptoms started this morning after I woke up; they include red swollen skin with red bumps, tender and warm to the touch, painful when touching or moving my leg. I do not have a fever. Can I wait till morning to see my doctor, or should I go to the emergency room tonight?

I am 57 yrs old. I have had cellulitis 4-5 times in each leg. Early symptoms include high fever, nausa, and at times I develop a dry cough. I have had ultra sounds in both legs to rule out clots each time. I had venus reflux in one leg and had laser surgry to correct the problem, this was done in april of this year, I just developed cellulitis again in the same leg I had the treatment in. They want to send me to a infectious diease specialist??? what next?????
