Cellulitis: Might be an infection of the skin
I would suggest to be checked out at the ER for full assessment.

Sounds like: you "picked up" (infected) with MERSA (Staphylococcal) infection. You may need systemic (oral) antibiotics!
See your Primary Care professional as soon as practicable...Get an anti-bacterial soap and OTC Cream (ask your Pharmacist)
Hope this helps!
Do it soon!
