Causes of Cellulitis
Microbes need an entry into the human body to be able to surface in the form of infections. The bacteria, streptococci and staphylococci, are the causative agents of Cellulitis. Most cases of this disease are through a break in the skin caused by ulcers, burns, bites, grazes, cuts and other skin conditions. In odd cases, it may enter directly through the blood system or the lymphatic system.
Symptoms of Cellulitis
Whether Cellulitis occurs in the limbs or any part of the body, it can always be symptomized by the following conditions:
• Warm and tender skin
• Affected area marked by swollen and reddened skin surface
• Irritation and pain in the skin region
• Sometimes marked by blisters
Occasionally, the patient may have a fever, chills and nausea due to the infection. Shivering is present in most cases.
