CELLULITIS?

This could be cellulitis, DVT or Arterial thrombosis. Another dd is dermatitis. Urgently rule out venous/ arterial cause. Take proper history. Advice a d-dimer test. Get a doppler study of the arterial and venous systems. Can also get a CK and myoglobin in urine. Start pt on antibiotics. Give updates.
