Recurring cellulitis
« on: October 31, 2019, 11:04:28 AM »
I seem to have developed this recently, it's a skin infection in the deepest layer of the skin.

As it's new to me I am wondering if anyone else has had this?

I wonder if stress has lowered my immune system allowing this to take hold.

It clears up quickly with antibiotics but then comes back somewhere else, bit odd.

Stress can indeed affect physical health...do you take vitamins? When I'm sick or need healing I'll use vitamin C, and the vitamin B's are great for stress, too. Best of luck to you.

The most recent episode didn't clear up, i ended up in hospital. I suspect my immune system is not doing its job properly.

Maybe I should take vitamins, I've not been eating properly, they might help.

It might not be stress based  but I think it might well be.

It is also listed as a possible side effect on some medications, so if you are taking any, that might not hurt to look in to.

I hope you feel better soon. Take care! :)
