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.
