In brief: Mrs. Mohanty

Needs to see a doctor. There are many reasons why legs can swell.
The concern is the fact she has pain. Many people with swollen legs do not complain of pain rather tired legs, a heaviness etc. Due to t he fact there is pain this should be checked out. As you stated the swelling itself appears to have been there a while.

In brief: Question unclear

Bilateral leg swelling can have many causes.
Whether prior cellulitis in one extremity played any role is difficult to know, but was unlikely to have been responsible for both legs. Congestive heart failure, lymphatic insufficiencies, venous insufficiency, and other systemic causes are more probable.

In brief: What's the cause ?

Cellulitis is basically a visible inflammation (itis) of the skin and soft tissues (red, hot, swollen and tender) .
It can be caused by many things including sunburn (radiation), trauma (sprained ankle) or poor vein circulation (stasis dermatitis). It need not be caused by bacteria. If you have repeated episodes of this, get to a wound care or vascular specialist, the diagnoses you have is wrong.
