Skin Rash

Since I returned home from Atlantic City in February I've had a very annoying 'rash' on my left leg between the ankle and knee. I've tried without success to ignore the itching and have been scratching away diligently believing I had hives. It's getting worse and spreading. My sister-in-law Caren, who works as a dietitian in a local hospital came up to look at it this evening and says to her it does not look like hives, but cellulitis which is a bacterial infection similar to the Staph infection. She says she sees this all the time in the hospital. I have no clue how I would have gotten this but it is driving me insane with the itching. I'm going to call tomorrow morning to see if I can get a doctor to take a look at it.
