In brief: Cellulitis

The appropriate treatment of cellulitis depends on many factors such as underlying medical conditions, extent and location of the cellulitis.
A culture is helpful, however not always possible to obtain. For antibiotic choice, drug interactions, sensitivity of the most common organisms, and any intolerances or allergies are all important. Oflox may be a good choice; tendinopathies have been seen.
