Re post 899

Had little guy at GP last night re the red toe which developed blisters during the day yesterday. GP diagnosed cellulitis, so prescribed Zithromax for 3 days. Double-checked with paed, who suggested to add Celestamine for 3 days. If it doesn''t improve by Friday paed will take a look - she thinks it might be a spider bite.

Anyhow, thanks for your help. Much appreciated as always!
