Customer Question
I also have swollen left...
I also have swollen left hand, red , hot and itchy. It occurred the first time about 4 weeks ago. I was prescribed bactrin, prednisone, and pepsid. I took the full anti biotic but stopped the Prednisone after 3 days. I could not sleep, and very shaky it went away snd came back two weeks later on my index finger and went away quickly. Friday night I started to itch and started to swell a little yesterday. This morning I woke up and it was really swollen. I have been getting alot of skin conditions in the last two years. It started with coming home from a cruise getting what I thought then was athletes feet. Then about three pout s of ring worm . What is going on. I am a normal stressed out person.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
