In brief: Maybe

If you truly have cellulitis you will need a systemic antibiotic and not just a cream.

In brief: Good treatment

For a mild cellulitis you should be fine to use a topical anitbiotic like Vibramycin (doxycycline) and/or Tobramycin.
I usually use one or the other but both together is fine.
