Should I talk to my doctor about my erysipelas symptoms?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

The sooner you go to a doctor, the sooner you can begin treatment. If you don't receive treatment, there is also the chance that your erysipelas will spread to your blood, which is a much more dangerous and serious condition.
