What Causes Cellulitis?

Bacteria is the culprit that causes cellulitis. Once bacteria enters by way of a cut or abrasion, your body runs the risk of developing an infection, and cellulitis is one type of infection that may occur.

Streptococci or staphylococci are the specific types of bacteria the will lead to cellulitis. This infection runs deep into the soft tissue of the skin. The soft tissue is the layer of skin below the outermost layer. This skin surrounds organs, nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and ligaments. This goes without saying, but keeping the soft tissue healthy is extremely important. Seek medical treatment at the first sign of cellulitis.

Skin affected by an ulcer, burn, bite, graze, cut, eczema, athlete’s foot, or psoriasis are all susceptible for streptococci or staphylococci. Depending on individual health and lifestyle risk for exposure may differ.

Groups at high risk for cellulitis infection include:

  • Groups of people living in close quarters (homeless shelters, dormitories, military barracks)
  • People with skin prone to swelling and cracking
  • Those who are overweight, or have diabetes
  • People with weakened immune systems, or poor circulation
  • People suffering from conditions that cause blisters (chickenpox, shingles)
  • Illegal drug users who use dirty needles
 

People who have cellulitis, are at a great for developing cellulitis again

When experiencing a cut or abrasion, keep skin free from bacteria and well protected to fend away the streptococci and staphylococci bacteria.
