Hello. I remember about the disease that I have suffered for 3 months. The left leg near the ankle was swollen and red. Sometimes my leg swelled up to my calf and leg. And sometimes bs fever. When pressed slowly turn it back. It seems like there’s a buildup of liquid. I have consulted a doctor and I was convicted of rheumatoid arthritis. But I don’t because I don’t feel the scaly on the wrist like the RA symptom. Some say I have cellulitis not RA. Please explain about these diseases. And it’s best if I am a consultant, what specialist? Because I was always treated by the surgical doctor. Thank you in advance

Hi.

swelling in the ankle area can be caused by various causes. From what you experience, swelling in the ankle area could be due to RA. RA or rhematoid arteries is a disease caused by autoimmune. RA is a chronic disease whose exact cause is not known with certainty. RA can cause inflammation of the joints, usually the joints affected in small joints. In addition, RA can also cause symptoms other than pain in the joints, such as swelling of the retracted leg, the appearance of lumps and lumps, to changes in the shape of the joints.

Cellulitis is an infection of the skin tissue. Cellulitis is usually caused due to a bacterial infection. Cellulitis causes symptoms such as fever, intense pain in the legs, swelling, redness, may be accompanied by discharge from the sore leg.

To differentiate between them, direct physical examination and other supporting examinations are needed, such as antibody examination.

Therefore, if you are still in doubt, you can consult an Internal Medicine doctor, so that the doctor can check your condition further. If your condition is caused by cellulitis, treatment using certain antibiotics is necessary.
