Question Cellulitis - help needed

I recently had a diagnosis of cellulitis on both lower legs and feet. My legs/feet were swollen, super itchy, painful, inflamed and had blisters all over my skin, that when I rubbed them they leaked in huge patches.

After 3 courses of antibiotics the redness, and blistering has gone. The painful skin has diminished but not totally gone but the swelling has partially remained. My skin is like crocodile skin. It is super itchy and comes off in flaky pieces.

Does any one know of any treatment that I might use over the counter. I was told to use a urea based cream which I am doing but it just seems to make the skin thicker and itchier. It is also hard to wear my shoes which are not tight and my feet are just plain ugly!

Help anyone?
