A 42-year-old member asked:

No: It is possible to get more than one infection in your life time so there is no permanent cure for infections. You could see your doctor and get the current problem resolved but there is no guarantee you will never get another infection or case of cellulitis again. Cellulitis occurs in obese people very often in different areas.

What's the cause?: Cellulitis is an inflammation (red, hot swollen and tender) of the skin and soft tissues. It can be cause by many things such as bacteria, sunburn, vein disease and trauma all of which have different treatments. Depending on where it occurs and what is the cause, changes the treatment. If you keep having recurrences, the treatments are wrong, seek another opinion.
