A year ago I had a severe tooth abscess. Then a year later I had 2 bouts of cellulitis 3 months apart from eachother in leg. Why the weird infections?

Have annual physical. Problems don't get better unless you are in charge of resolving them. When was last time you have seen your doctor or dentist prior to these infections?
