Cellulitis is a common bacterial skin infection. Cellulitis may first appear as a red, swollen area that feels hot and tender to the touch. The redness and swelling often spread rapidly. Cellulitis is usually painful. Symptoms of cellulitis include:
• Pain or tenderness in the affected area
• Skin redness or inflammation that gets bigger as the infection spreads
• Skin sore or rash that starts suddenly, and grows quickly in the first 24 hours
• Hair loss at the site of the infection
• Nausea and vomiting
HOW IS CELLULITIS DIAGNOSED?
The general physician can diagnose the issue with the help of a sample extracted from the wound for a skin culture along with other lab tests like blood, urine and stool tests. Usually, a physical examination is also sufficient to diagnose the condition.
HOW IS CELLULITIS TREATED?
The treatment begins with resting the area that is affected. To reduce the discomfort, you should keep the part of your body slightly elevated. Over the counter medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen can be used to relieve pain and fever.
