No: There are no over the counter medications to treat cellulitis. You need antibiotics prescribed by a physician.

Not sure if asked about cellulitis (infection) or cellulite (cosmetic). The answer to the former is no and for the latter, do your homework before you waist your money

None: In my opinion - there are no over the counter medicines to treat the cellulite or fatty tissue.

Cellulite/cellulitis: Did you mean cellulite- localized fatty deposits protruding through connective tissue and causing uneveneness of skin especially around the hips, thighs and buttocks or did you mean cellulitis- acute skin infection? Neither can be treated with OTC medicines. Both require you to see a medical professional well versed in the optimal treatments for either issue.
