Cellulitis is a common, yet serious type of bacterial skin infection . The infected parts of the skin turns red and swollen, while at the same time it’s painful and warm to touch. It commonly affects the skin on the lower legs, but on the other hand, it can also occur in the face, arms and other parts of the body. This happens when there is a break in your skin that allows the bacteria to enter.
If this condition was left untreated, it can rapidly spread to your lymph nodes and bloodstream that will result in a more serious problem. The infection doesn’t spread from one individual to another.
