See below: The ciro and Flagyl you are on is to treat some infection. Your persistent fever suggests it is not working. You list cellulitis under conditions. If this is your infection Keflex and septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) would be a better antibiotic choice. Get reevaluated and have your treatment changed.
