In brief: Exam
Really physical exam is best-- occasionally doc may check labs to determine extent of infections.
G white blood cell count. Depending on severity/location, possible may need imaging studies to rule out underlying abscess such as ultrasound, mri, ct.

In brief: No tests
There are no tests for cellulitis.
It's a clinical diagnosis, which means it's based on the symptoms and the physical examination findings.
