    i am worried it is going to be turned into staph and be life threatening. her leg is discolored, has had oozing and now has a lump behind her knee which can be an absess or cyst. i am petrified for her.  she has to take off work everytime she gets an infection which takes a month or so to finally go away.  any ideas on who she should go see

    I am going through my second bout of cellulities and 21 days of antibiotics and it is still not cleared up. Currently my docotr is sending me to a wound clinic for evaluation. You may want to suggest this to your friend as well if she has not already been to one.
