Cellulitis: Symptom and Causes


Possible signs and symptoms of cellulitis include:
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Pain
  • Warmth
  • Fever and chills
  • Swollen glands
Over time, the area of redness tends to expand. Small red spots may appear on top of the reddened skin, and less commonly, small blisters may form and burst.


Cellulitis occurs when one or more types of bacteria enter through a crack or break in your skin. The two most common types of bacteria that are causes of cellulitis are streptococcus and staphylococcus.
