Hello and thanks for your question! You're speaking with Dr. Bridget. I appreciate your patience as I review your question and prepare my response.

Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 12 months ago.

I would recommend Naproxen 220 mg every 12 hours and Hydrocorisone cream 1% applied to the rash four times day. If the leg is swollen from fluid buildup, also use Diurex water pills per package instructions. Also, keep the leg elevated whenever possible.
