Are cellulitis and strep throat related? Can one cause the other?

Yes in certain cases

Strep_throat
Cellulitis does not "cause" strep throat. However, both cellulitis and strep throat can be caused by a bacteria called Streptococcus pyogenes (Group A strep, aka GAS). GAS produces different toxins resulting in symptoms such as fever, malaise, very red skin, and low blood pressure. Both these infections must be treated aggressively, with penicillin remaining the drug of choice.

Can cellulitis and strep throat be related? Why can't we get rid if the cellulitis

Maybe

Cellulitis
You need to see a physician for an antibiotic prescription. You may need a culture to find out what it is sensitive to. Bacterial infections usually require medication to go away.

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

i have had 3 bouts of mrsa, face n throat (along w cellulitis), once in lip absess and once in neck absess. will this be a continual problem for me?

Try decolonization

Neck-throat
It could be a recurrent problem as you are probably colonized with MRSA. See your doctor about an attempt at decolonization with Bactroban nasal ointment, Hibiclens soap shower and shampoo and possibly one of several antibiotics that obtain high nasal secretion levels such as minocycline, Septra, or rifampin. Intimate contacts should have nasal MRSA screens and decolonization if positive.

How does a four year old get cellulitis and is it like a strep infection if not how is it different?

Yes

Cellulitis
Cellelitis is an infection of the skin and underlying tissue, basically. It is often caused by the strep bacteria, sometimes by staph. Strep is found everywhere but strep is the bacteria, cellulitis is the name given to the clinical infection.

Dr. Keshav Narain answered:

Can strep throat cause blurred or impaired vision in one eye?

Maybe, but

Vision
get an eye exam just to make sure it isn't something more serious. It is not uncommon for the same viruses that can cause sore throat or pharyngitis to also cause a conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is usually in both eyes, but may begin in one eye causing blurring. Again, be sure to rule out other causes by getting a complete eye exam at some point.

Can performing (unprotected) fellatio cause a female to get strep throat? It seems too related to just be a coincidence but it has happened 3 times.

Doubtful

Open-uri20140203-5683-nbt3dn
You do not provide enough information to make an informed evaluation. Where the three occasions with different or the same man? Was streptococcus isolated and/or cultured from all three pharyngitis tissues? I have never heard of an association between fellatio and strep throat.

Can oral sex cause strep throat?

Rarely

Sex
Other STDs are much more likely. Strep (group A) can cause vaginitis or perianal infections sometimes, so transfer to throat is possible.
