recalcitrant lesions

I cut my foot when I took a tumble over my tricycle. So, of course, it's infected. I went to see my GP and she put a bandage over it with fucidin creme. She also prescribed cephalex. But first she drew a circle around the red part to see if it gets bigger or smaller.

Everything else was normal . Symptoms are just ptosis or drooping of the right eyelid. Nothing else

If someone can please decipher the terminology and language and let me ...

M.S. and antiphospholipid_syndrome

The first problem was pain in one arm caused by a thromboembolic condition. That led to the MS diagnosis. But by then I was already on blood thinners. So what came first, the MS or the antiphospholipid_syndrome?
