Numb with Cellulitis

Patient

Q: I have had cellulitis for seven days now and I have been taking bactrim for 5 days but I am worried because although the redness stopped spreading the blisters got bigger and now I feel numbness in that area affecting how I walk. I keep my feet elevated whenever I can but I just want to know if I should go get help right now instead of my scheduled appointment in three more days? Also my some of the blisters are kinda whitish in color.
