Hmm, so I have a blister on the bottom of my foot that hurts so much that I am thinking it may be infected (I bandaged it early yesterday and haven't looked since 'cause I don't really want to know. . .)
This concerns me because I just finished a round of antibiotics for another skin infection -- where a back of the ankle blister got infected. It took two friggin' weeks to get my digestion back in order so I really, really don't want to do another round of antibiotics.
So really I have two questions --
- Can I just ride this out or are there other ways to get rid of an infection?
- Could there be something in my diet that is making me prone to these infections?
I can tell you that this is my constitution -- to get infections. Sinus and skin mostly. No sinus trouble since going Paleo, yippee. And I'm not breaking out on my face at all (which used to be a problem).
But I'm wondering what skin infections could be a sign of?
