How many times in 24 hours can I use hibcleanse solution on the mons pubic area for cellulitis. Currently taking 500mg antibiotics 4 times daily?
Waste of time: Cellulitis is when the soft tissues get inflammed (red, hot, swollen and tender) due to bacteria or another cause such as sunburn, trauma, etc. If your skin is not open, then using good soap and water to the area will work as well as hibiclens. If open, then the hibiclens is actually slowing down the healing. Traumatizing the area > 1x/day in the attempt to "clean" it is only causing more trauma. ...Read more

It can be caused by many things including sunburn (radiation), trauma (sprained ankle) or allergies. It need not be caused by bacteria. What you describe sounds more like a contact allergy as infections do not resolve and recur like that, allergic rashes do. Get a new opinion. ...Read more
