Martin Roberts’ health status after a flare-up of a dangerous skin ailment – the signs and symptoms
MARTIN ROBERTS, 58, of Homes Under The Hammer, has provided an update on his skin condition after being hospitalized early last week due to a flare-up.
After his cellulitis worsened, the presenter spent six hours in Poole Hospital’s A&E department on Monday. “Bloody cellulitis has flared up again and it’s spread to my other leg as well,” he wrote on Twitter. Despite viewing my leg, the chemists refused to give me the antibiotics I needed owing to a “system error” and a lack of understanding of the severity of the situation. Thank you so much, @LloydsPharmacy, for making A&E possible for me.”
Martin Roberts used a video on Twitter yesterday to tell his 27,700 followers that he was finally “feeling a bit better.”
He went on to explain, “So I’m delighted to announce that here on this Saturday morning, it’s now feeling a little bit better, but it just goes to show that you do need to take things seriously.”
“If you have cellulitis like I did, look at the photographs of what it looked like and get it treated as soon as possible, because it can grow really, really dangerous if you don’t get those antibiotics in you.
“It takes a long time to get better, even with antibiotics.”
Cellulitis is a painful skin illness that causes your skin to become heated, swollen, and blistered.
Cellulitis can damage any area of your body, including your hands, legs, feet, and, more critically, your eyes, according to the NHS.
If left untreated, the infection can quickly spread to your lymph nodes and bloodstream, posing a serious health risk.
The skin condition’s symptoms usually emerge on one side of the body.
Any of these symptoms, according to the Mayo Clinic, could indicate that you have cellulitis in its early stages:
A break or crack in the skin allows bacteria to enter, causing cellulitis.
This break or split in the skin can be as little as a puncture hole on the lower leg and is sometimes undetectable.
Cellulitis can be caused by recent surgery, cuts, an ulcer, athlete’s foot, animal bites, or dermatitis. Bacteria can also get into the body through dry, flaky, or inflamed skin.
But I believe I made the right decision by coming in! The IV antibiotics should start working soon. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
