Can facial cellutis kill you?

In brief: Unlikely

If it was never treated and let go for weeks then it might.
Most cases of cellulitis are easily treated with antibiotics. If it is "periorbital" cellulitis that is much more serious as the infection is around and behind the eye with easier access to the brain. No matter what, get the celluitis treated ASAP.
