BLISTER?

Postby lisa_t » Sat Sep 02, 2006 1:55 pm

I have a blister on my lymph leg. It is the size of a large pea. The are around the blister is a little hot and swollen. I called my Lymph doctor and she will not be in until Tuesday.
The question is should I waste my time going to the ER and they not know what to do.
What should I do.

Hi Lisa,
This is definately a bad week-end to find any medical help except the ER. If it is an infection the docs in the ER should recognize it as such and be able to give you antibiotics. If you wait until Tues. to see your doctor everything may be much worse. I'm sure you will make the right decision. Good luck!
