Cellulitis gone bad?

A few years ago I fell and damaged my left knee very badly. After about 3 months I got cellulitis on my lower leg caused by the damage to the knee (doctor said). I went back and forth to the doctor for this, had all kinds of test run, took all kinds of meds and nothing helped. I stopped going to the doctor and wasting my time and money. Now the leg has a hardening on the inside of the leg and the reddness is now a deep purple and moving to the back and side of my leg. I get blisters on it still at times and it is very tender and sore, I can't stand for anyone to touch it, my ankle also swells. At times the pain is very deep and other times not so bad. Yesterday morning when I got up I noticed a knot on the outside of the same leg, but during the day it went away. This morning it is back again. When I run my fingers around it, I can feel the hardening that comes from the other side of my leg leading to it. Has anyone ever had Cellulitis to go like this?

  • I had cellulitis in my ear and throat and no medicine would heal it. It became progressively worse in a very short period of time. I almost died from it. I was hospitalized for about a week and simply recieved penicillin intraveneously and it slowly went away. That is a bad case of cellulitis!
