This week a classic Australian remote area case. There is so much to discuss on this case! But I have isolated a few key points to put under the microscope, and get your input / expertise.
47 yo. Aboriginal woman has returned to the ED complaining of painless purulent lesions on her left foot. She was seen a week ago by the nice city locum who diagnosed cellulitis and commenced her on a week of oral flucloxacillin. She has been taking this for 6 days, but it aint working!
