Amune to Antibiotics
February 13, 2009 7:40am CST
I have been out of work for 5 months now with celulitis in my right leg. Celulitis is a bacterial skin infection that may also affect tissues under the skin and can spread to your lymph nodes and blood stream. It usually appears in the lower leg but can occur anywhere on the body including your face. It is very painful on the surface as well as in the tissues under the skin. I have been dealing with this issue since Oct 6th and have been on 3 different antibiotics. It has gone away but then it re-occurs about 4-5 weeks after it looks like it is gone. I have also had to deal with superficial blood clots that they can do nothing about, which were probably affected by the celulitis. I just went back to the doctors a week ago because the celuliis came back. They were skeptical of putting me on more antibiotic because I have been on them for quite a while. At this point I had not been on them for 6 weeks and was actually looking forward to going back to work in 2 more weeks, but not now. They gave me one of the strongest form of oral antibiotics, but they are not working, I have been on them for 6 days, I have 4 more days to go. There has been no improvements this time, so I am assuming my body has finally become amune. I imagine I will be going into the hospital to get other treatment intoveineusely. It is Valentines weekend and we have plans, so I am waiting. My question is, does anyone know of a natural way to help the speed of my recovery? Is there a natural vitamin or herb that I could be taking to get rid of the celulitis? Any suggestions and ideas are welcome, I am tired of being home and not at work and tired of the pain in my leg. Thanks in advance.
