In brief: Redness swelling pai

Cellulitis causes pain, redness, swelling, warmth and loss of function of the affected area.
There may be fever, local discharge and in severe cases, abscess formation and tissue necrosis. Rarely cellulitis causes rapid necrosis, commonly known as flesh eating bacterial infection.

In brief: What's the cause?

Cellulitis is an inflammation (red, hot swollen and tender) of the skin and soft tissues.
It can be caused by many things such as bacteria, sunburn, vein disease and trauma all of which have different treatments. Depending on where it occurs and what is the cause, the treatment changes. If you keep having recurrences, the treatments are wrong, seek another opinion.
