Customer Question
Hi we are in...

Hi we are in Cancun Mexico on vacation from the US. Symptoms of swollen, painful feet for a few days now. No known allergies except penisilin. Rash from fluid build up on ankles and calf. It has never done this before. We have done a lot of walking but I am normally a very active person in day to day life. I have used ice and extra strength Tylenol. No known health problems. Just wondering what to do Or what may have caused this.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

OK waiting for redirection to the deposit page. My internet connection is terrible.

here they are. This is after having them elevated and rested all night.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
This is the worst they have looked. It seems that it's not getting any better with elevation or rest.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago
The images show that there is is some edema which is fluid retention often from sitting still for long periods of time. No signs of infections so that’s good. The best thing to do is to keep on elevating them and it will resolve on its own.

If you by chance also had a lot of water to drink and or salt then that can contribute to worsening edema.

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
