Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you have phlebitis. You don't mention that your legs are swollen or hot to the touch, which is good and does not indicate a deep vein problem. Superficial phlebitis can be treated with injections into the vein to dissolve the clots. Also, may I suggest you wear support hose until you can see the vascular surgeon or dermatologist. The Cephalexin is an antibiotic and the Ranitidine is for your stomach. If you are having any difficulty breathing, please contact your doctor now or go to an Urgent Care Center for evaluation of a possible blood clot in your lung.

I hope I have addressed your concerns.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
