I dont like the sound of that.
Perhaps you should contact the doctor again?
hello @canary im 3 days of 7 in with anti-bios. because im allergic to penicillin, the ones they give me are slower to act. i wish they would act quicker. i feel worse today. i have to give the tablets a chance but if not better will be going back to the gp. cant be allergy as im taking antihistamines for my hayfever. my sight is blurry because im trying to see out of my less-sighted eye. im fed up with feeling ill.

Have tried an ice pack and I don't like the sound of it either?

You need a proper rest @jennifer1967 . It would be nice if your son could take your husband out more often. I don't suppose he would have your husband to stay for a few days (when restrictions allow) to give you a proper break?

Please phone the Dr tomorrow. You don’t have anything to lose and maybe something to gain

i have phoned the doctors this morning and shes giving me a cream, anti-bac and steroid and the tiredness is probably the infection and inflammation of the skin. if its not better to phone tuesday and take rest of anti-bios. its hard to put one foot in front of the other.
