In brief: Doubt so

Probably related to the inflamatory reaction.

In brief: Probably not

Inflammatory situations like cellulitis can damage peripheral nerve endings, causing numbness and tingling - but such localized conditions are usually self-limited, and resolve over time.
If it persists, it might be caused by something else (such as a pinched nerve), and you should consult a neurologist.
