Cellulitis

What is cellulitis?

Cellulitis is a deep bacterial infection of the skin. The infection usually involves the face, or the arms and legs. It may happen in normal skin, but it usually occurs after some type of trauma causes an opening in your skin. This opening can lead to an infection.

What is the cause of cellulitis?

Cellulitis is usually caused by a bacterial infection of a wound or area of skin that is no longer intact. The most common bacterial causes of cellulitis include the following:

    * group A ß - hemolytic streptococcus
    * Streptococcus pneumoniae
    * Staphylococcus aureus

     

Other causes may include human or animal bites, or injuries that occur in water.


Treatment for cellulitis:

Specific treatment for cellulitis will be determined by your physician based on:

    * your age, overall health, and medical history
    * extent of the condition
    * your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
    * expectations for the course of the condition
    * your opinion or preference
