Many Causes: 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.
