Our doctor is pretty holistic, and he immediately prescribed Keflex for him. He said he has Cellulitis.
|... (and probiotics when we're done)|
|Does it get worse before it gets better?|
|I guess my other question would be what causes foot fungus in a toddler?|
|He has been in physical therapy for over a year, and just started walking at 18 months. So, he's usually been barefoot or in socks inside. I thought "athlete's foot" was caused by sweaty feet?|
I am surprised he doesn't have a fever???
In this case I would probably go with the antibiotics also.
This is the only thing I would do differently, I would start with probiotics NOW. And I would keep it up for at least a year or longer. The flora is not replaced as easily as it is destroyed by antibiotics.
NO, I don't think so, it should start getting better within a day. If not, I would call the doctor back and ask him.
Sugar in the diet? Sodas, candy... wrong nutrition? I don't know how your diet is, I am just saying some things that could be the culprit.
Or contact with the fungus such as in the locker room or at the physical therapy. ??
I hope it starts to heal quickly. Diet is the key to keeping his athlete's foot under control. Is he still nursing? Is he vaccinated?
Is the doctor sure of the diagnostic? Cellulitis is serious, it's an infection of all the layers of skin and spreads rapidly. Like all infection, there should be a fever.
I would put a topical antibiotic cream (polysporin) and not pierce the skin. If it gets worse I would definitely seek medical attention.
Other things it could be is hand/foot/mouth disease (causes blister to form on the bottom of the feet, sometimes on the hands and inside of mouth too).
So, the probiotic the nurse mentioned to me is called Culturell. Have you heard of that one? Any other suggestions? I've always taken Difulcan or acidophilus tablets.
