Antibiotics: Treatment for cellulitis is with antibiotics, usually oral. See your doctor for further evaluation.

See doc: First and foremost this should be seen by a doc- there are cancers that can appear like a cellulitis. Assuming it is not, appropriate antibiotics, warm compress, drainage of any underlying abscess( which may require ultrasound for diagnosis), and likely also mammogram to rule out malignancy. Smoking can also lead to inflammation and should be stopped.
