Possible: The symptoms you are describing can be seen in sepsis. It would be a good idea to be re-evaluated soon at an emergency department/urgent care center if he is not getting better on his prescribed therapy for cellulitis.
Dr. Heidi Fowler

Possibly: Recommend that he be expeditiously evaluated to rule that out. Take care.
