Hi doctor,

My father got a wound in his leg in a small accident. He is a diabetic and because of this reason, cellulitis has occurred in his leg. We took a treatment for that, but the treatment is somewhat doubtful to us. He is on Distaclor CD 375 and Debridase ointment. Please give us a suggestion.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com

  • In evaluating his case, my recommendations would be that he should be admitted for a week and should be given injectable broad antibiotics according to his culture and sensitivity report.
  • He would require Insulin for perfect control of blood sugar till his would heal. This is the best way out for him. So, visit your doctor and discuss my opinion.
