Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

Got it--thanks

You've got a severe case of cellulitis--skin infection--there

Nothing topical is going to help here--you need to see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

oral antibiotic ? could antihistamine help?
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

Yes--oral

An antihistamine might help with the pain but it won't treat the infection
