Dr. Michael Miller answered:

Can weeping edema blisters of the legs be treated at home? What is the best way to prevent cellulitis?

What's the cause ?

Blistering
Cellulitis is basically a VISIBLE inflammation (itis) of the skin and soft tissues (Red, hot, swollen and tender) . It can be caused by many things including sunburn (radiation), trauma (sprained ankle) or poor vein circulation (stasis dermatitis). It need not be caused by bacteria. If you have repeated episodes of this, get to a wound care or vascular specialist, the diagnoses you have is wrong.
