The Difference Between Rheumatoid Arthritis And Cellulitis?
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
