Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
He has difficulty walking but this is a longstanding and ongoing problem and partly due to very flat feet and an inability to obtain correct orthopaedic advice. Gapapentin alleviates pain.
Cellulitis in his left leg, had very bad infection in 2002 and occasional bouts since, last one in October after tripping over a pavement and cutting his leg. Is aware now of symptoms and gets treatment as soon as he can.
Urine infections probably two or three in last 12 months
I do not see that you have received or reviewed the answer that I provided above. Sometimes, the notification system fails, so I am placing another post to prompt the system to send another notification. My answer is as above. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you - I had to leave the house at 10.30 a.m. for a previous engagement.
Thank you for your answer - I must admit my reason for asking the question was to get a negative response about the journey and heat in an attempt to persuade him not to go!
He's very bad at keeping himself hydrated at the best of times, so I was hoping your response might highlight the risk of urine infections as well as mosquito bites that could bring on cellulitis.
Can you help in this regard?
thank you again
