Ok well thats fine I read about the kind on your eyelid...I have been on Septra.This morning I woke up....sooo weak and in so much pain on my right breast. I have about a quarter size complete red circle on it with a bright red streak going straight up my breast to under my arm and it is very painful.

Get to the doctor asap! I just went through having cellulitis. The doc. told me if i got a fever or a red streak it would go into the blood stream and could be fatal if not treated in time. Go to the hospital! They can give you IV antibiotics. don't waste time. God bless you!
