The cellulitis can usually be found in feet and legs at the lower part of the body especially the feet are most exposed to the germs and infections. The blood flow in this part of the body is considerably lower as well and thus the attack of some fungal infection is most likely to appear. However there is still the probability of cellulitis where there is some intravenous catheter as well.


Step 2

Any type of bacteria could prove to be the cause of cellulitis, but Streptococcus is the most widespread means for the cultivation cellulitis. It is never difficult to avoid a disease if you follow some basic hygiene rules. However, some conditions are caused even if there is extreme precaution taken.

Step 4

You can help the blood circulation in the infected area to increase by applying a germ free and salted mop, put some pressure on the subject area and raise the skin upwards. This will help the blood circulation and in turn will reduce pain and help the affected area to heal quickly.

Step 5

For a further precaution, you may take a blood or skin sample to a test laboratory to know which form of bacteria you have and what precautions you must take to avoid it. There are specific antibiotics for each type of bacteria and knowing the type you are having will help the doctor know which antibiotic to give you.
