I had to look it up too! It's nothing to do with cellulite (the dreaded "orange peel" look), but a nasty skin condition. Have a look on Wiki, it doesn't look pleasant! :eek:

Welcome back, Stu. That doesn't sound very comfortable - I hope it's clearing up.

Thanks everyone - yes it was a bit nasty for a while but thanks to lots of antibiotics and creams/lotions and things to increase the integrity of my skin I may be on the road to recovery.

I had four lower leg infections (2 on each limb) in 6 months with the fourth one being serious enough for hospital admission which lasted 8 days.

So whats been going on whilst I've been away? Any gossip? :eek:
