I don't have a fever yet...

Open Road!
...but apparently I can expect one by tomorrow and need to see the doctor again on Wednesday. 

In the meantime there are antibiotics and I have (with dalekboy's assistance) laid in food supplies.

What I thought (yesterday) was a lump in my right leg is apparently a subcutaneous* boil/abcessy thing. Watching the infection spread up the leg in a line has a certain grotesque fascination.

I've been ordered off work in the meantime to let the immune system kick in.

*Mostly, The skin is now going quite pink

So, plenty of rest and fluids for me over the next day or so.

Packet says Cephalexin Anhydrous.

I'm certainly NOT going anywhere tomorrow, or the day after, until I've seen the doctor again.

Thanks for the well wishes.

They can *really* irritate your throat.

That is scary! Lucky we live in the world of antibiotics. Get well soon!

Thanks. As of this morning it looks like the infection has either stopped advancing or at least slowed down a lot.
