Sometime early in the morning on Thursday, I was bitten by a mosquito (I think) on the back of my right hand. At first I thought I was just having a serious allergic reaction when it started swelling way up. So, I left work, came home and took some Benadryl.
On Friday morning, my hand looked like this
I have a tendency to just put things off and figure it will be OK after a while. But with a swollen as my hand was, I went to see a doctor. I was told it had turned into cellulitis. Had to look that one up; Cellulitis is a common skin infection caused by bacteria. I was put on antibiotics, and this morning the swelling is down by half and I can bend my fingers again.
