My hubby has cellulitis of the rt leg x1 week. He has been taking bacterum. Redness has gone but not the painful swelling. Is this normal? Yes? No?

Wrong Diagnosis ? 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.
