    Skin Rash that will not go!
    Ladyfeets posted:
    Hi . I first had what i thought was dryskin on my ankle ..went to Urgent Care and they prescribed me some ketacanozole cream and I even thought it was ringworm ..this was about 1.5 months ago. The cream made it worse and I did every homeopathic medicine possible from apple cider and whatever else.. .then I noticed no change just a slow down then and ankle started swelling until my foot was purple and had chills and fever.. I went back to Urgent Care and they diagnosed me with Cellulitis and took antibiotics that took a whole week to notice a change .. that was a month ago. Now.. it started to heal, skin is no longer red and hot and ran out of antibiotics but since it's so hot here in Arizona I can't prevent to sweat and I noticed its back to like a light pink rash . I tried everything form avoiding eating yeast and I even tried activated charcoal , gold bond powder to keep it dry and events tea tree oil.. why isn't it gone all the way yet. I posted a pic..I still don't even believe it's been diagnosed right or it turned to something else..someone help please!!
