My doctor said it's a bacterial infection - probably strep. I'm taking Keflex for that. He said he was treating it aggressively so also prescribed Bactrim in case there's some staph. This sounds serious. I'm to keep my foot elevated above my heart, so I won't be on the computer that often. I'm a mine canary when it comes to prescription meds, so wish me luck with these and no side-effects.
Dr said these are quite common, but I would like to know how I got it. Strange and painful.
