Cellulitis needs to be addressed by a doctor. Your doctor will be able to assess your condition by examining the skin’s appearance or wound culture. Someone suffering from cellulitis will need to take a prescription oral antibiotic, and symptoms should start improving after three days.
You may benefit from also using a soothing skin-repairing ointment in conjunction with antibiotics - ask your doctor to see what is right for your circumstance.
Even as symptoms improve, your doctor will probably ask you to continue taking antibiotics by mouth for anywhere from 5 to 14 days. Infection severity and treatment will vary by individual.
When cellulitis is very severe, your body may need to receive antibiotics intravenously, or through the veins. This sort of treatment is necessary if the infection is accompanied by a fever, symptoms do not respond to oral antibiotics, or the cellulitis has infected an extended area of the body. Extreme cases may require surgery to address abscess and dead tissue.
Whether the infection is caused from streptococci or staphylococci, the doctor will prescribe an antibiotic to eliminate both types of bacteria. To ensure the most complete treatment, adhere to the doctor’s orders, and always take medication as directed. Your doctor may recommend keeping the area elevated to speed recovery. For example, a cellulitis infection on the lower leg may benefit for being propped up when seated or sleeping.
