That’s nasty shit that mind becs, look after yourself.Been seen by an emergency GP. It's cellulitis.
She said it can be triggered as a secondary infection after a viral infection so yes it could have been because of the covid but in the same way as I could have developed it after flu or any other viral infection, so not a covid specific thing.
I'm on a course of antibiotics and steroid cream and hopefully that will clear it up but I have to go back urgently if it gets much worse, spreads further or I get symptoms of sepsis.
One of my team was hospitalised with it over Xmas a year or two ago
