How long does cellulitis last?
I am currently being treated for lower extremity cellulitis. i went to Immediate Care, was given an IV antibiotic and came home with two additional antibiotics. How long before it is gone?

No one can tell you this over the internet because each case of cellulitis is different. Your doctor should have given you instructions upon release from the immediate care facility. Refer to those instructions. If it says follow up with your own primary care doctor, that's what you need to do. Even if the antibiotics seem like they have worked, do not stop taking them until you have finished your full prescribed dosage. When you see the primary doctor, he or she will tell you if the cellulitis is cured at that time.
