Cellulitis of groin: It sounds like you have classical symptoms for cellulitis - a skin injury, followed by redness, pain and induration (hardness of the skin). You should show this to a doctor, because depending on how bad it is -you may well need treatment. I'd slather it in bacitracin now and call your doc to be seen. The lymph nodes might need to respond if it's bad enough (they are garrisons of the immune system) ...Read more
