Patient : I had a c-section on Oct14th. Had a surface infection on the incision about a week after was put on antibiotics seemed to clear up. On Nov.20th I noticed that the lump I've had above incision (which I've had since week one) had become red,the next day my whole stomache was red,inflammed and indurated.The week before this happend I had body aches,chills,headaches but no fever. I went to the ER and found out I have Cellulitis. I was put on IV antibiotics until Dec.2nd and I was put on Cefadroxil (pill form). The next day I had to go back to the ER because I had an allergic reaction to it and was put on Clindamycine,have been on that since Dec.3rd.I go back on Friday, now it is getting better but it seems like its taking forver, the redness is almost gone and it is only indurated in a small area, and i develpoed a sore on the area that has also really gone down in size. I just want to know will this ever go away? and once it does will it keep coming back. I should mention I am in good health but I am overweight and have asthma and eczema which I know puts you at a greater risk for reoccurance. I am just so fed up and just want to take care of my sweet little girl properly.
