These symptoms are already concerning.

THis can be a MRSA --resistant bacterial infection.

The infection may spread to your blood causing low blood pressure, dizziness, kidney failure with swelling of legs, shortness of breath etc.

YOu will need to see your doctor today or go to the local hospital for antibiotic course.

Clindamycin is effective against MRSA.
