I have suffered several bouts of cellulitus one of them serious enough for a 6 day hospital stay with 30 days of in home intervenious antibiotics. The skin on my lower leg and foot is
shiney an a dark color. It is tender and very thin. It tears easily which leads to more infections. What is the best way to care for the skin there. Lotions, creams. I am concerned because some skin lotions cause severe pealing and so does vitamin E oil.
thank you
