Should be: Obviously cellulitis can be quite severe and may require treatment including both IV and oral antibiotics as you are receiving. Regarding safety, antibiotic dosages may need to be altered either lower dosing of the pills or less pills taken because of your kidney disease. As long as though adjustments have been made /addressed you should be fine. Speak with your nephrologist to be safe. Good luck
