What is Cellulitis?

Cellulitis is a common, yet frustrating, bacterial skin infection. This condition typically first appears as a red and swollen patch of skin that may feel hot to the touch, then spreads quickly to the surrounding healthy skin. Although commonly affecting the skin on the legs, cellulitis has the potential to affect any skin on the body, including the face. When cellulitis first occurs, many patients may not think to address it. That being said, when left untreated, cellulitis can progress into a very serious condition resulting in muscle aches, fever, fatigue, and abscesses along the skin. If you believe you are suffering from cellulitis, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation at your earliest convenience.

How Do I Know if I Have Cellulitis?

Common symptoms of cellulitis that many of our patients find they experience include:

  • Redness and inflammation of the skin
  • Tenderness and swelling of the affected area
  • A skin rash or large sore that spreads quickly
  • Tight, glossy skin
  • Fever
  • Fatigue and lethargy
  • Dizziness
  • Blisters

What Causes Cellulitis?

Cellulitis is a bacterial skin infection that usually occurs when a wound on the skin becomes infected by Staphylococcus bacteria. This bacteria can infect any wound whether it be a small cut, an open sore, or a surgical wound. If you're unsure you have cellulitis or are unsure of its origins, our medical staff can confirm your condition with a physical exam and official diagnosis, followed by a personalized treatment plan.
