In brief: Yes
Cellulitis will cause swelling and redness and and on the legs or deep involvement can have a dark color. This needs treatments with antibiotics either orally or in more severe cases with intravenous antibiotics.
See your doctor as urgent appointment today if possible. Otherwise go to er.
