Hi again to this lovely group
The bottom of my left leg is a bit warm and has tiny bumps on it. This leg is more swollen then my right leg which does not have this at all. Should this be treated with anything special? I keep putting cream on it but not sure if I need a prescription or not? Thank you for any replies...cherie

Hi Cherie :)

That sounds an awful lot like an infection, possibly cellulitis. You probably want to get a hold of your doctor.
If you start feeling real achy, running a temp, feeling really "blah" and listless, I would get to an ER.

With lymphedema, these infections can go crazy real quick.

Let me know how you are.

Thank you Pat...when I was measured for stoclings a few days ago she suggested that I might have cellulitis and that was the first time I ever heard that word. I think I shall see the doctor and I hope it is not serious. It is achy there though too...cherie
