Wednesday night, I came down with strep throat. Thursday, after a nurse at the clinic confirmed it – I started taking penicillin. Almost immediately, my throat was better. Also almost immediately, my hand started swelling up.
Back to the clinic, where the doctor suspects cellulitis from a minor burn I received a week ago (so minor it’s not even visible on these pictures). That was being aggravated by the penicillin She gave me a different antibiotic – one focused on the cellulitis, less so on the strep.
If the swelling goes past the black line – I head back to the clinic.
