Why does cellulitis recur? If recurred within 2 months is this going to be happening all the time? I had lymphangitis the second time with it

In brief: Venous insufficiency

Recurrent "cellulitis" often reflects venous insufficiency.
Can look just like "cellulitis." Have you had ultrasound w reflux studies, which shows this problem? Venous insufficiency often easily fixed in Dr. office w local anesthesia. Antibiotics are not the answer to vein problems, even if they look like cellulitis. This may be key to prevent repeat episodes of cellulitis. Hope this helps.
