Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I can understand your concern.
You seem to have had cellulitis which is a bacterial infection of the skin and soft tissues. Probably, the antibiotic course wasn't for an adequate time or the bacteria might not be sensitive to that antibiotic.
I would recommend that you visit your doctor to request him to continue the antibiotics.
That would help to resolve your condition.
Please let me know if you have any queries.
Take care

Patient replied :

What antibiotics would you recommend for this type of condition. I have been taking Cefuroxime.
Thank you,

It would be best to consult your doctor who can judge whether you are responding reasonably well to cefuroxime or not. In case he feels there is a need to change it, he should be the best judge for it.
