Ok got th ediet correct. We have always eaten pretty healthy other than I felt too much red meat in the past and obviously the jury is out about that right now. My husband had a growth on top of his scalp that he had biopsied and several others burned off including one on his ear. He has suffered from psoriasis for a couple of years(late in life) so this is where he often breaks out.. The palliative nurse as well as reading I have done say any slight break in skin infection can happen especially with chemo. Cellulitis and chemo has a connection. so either the biopsy or more likely the burn done by dermatologist caused it to turn into cellulitis. he went to his dermatolgoist an hour away that he seldom sees and knowing my husband did not remind him he has PC and undergoing chemo. He went to have stitches to be removed last Wednesday and I aksed him to show the redness of his ear before it got bad and he said a nurse will be removing stiches and did not tell her then all hell broke loose. Hard time convincing him every little thing needs to be adressed. I am treating
