Pictures of cellulitus, including cellulitus of the face, can be found at Healthline.com. Cellulitus is a painful skin infection that first appears red and swollen and feels hot and tender to touch.
Cellulitus usually occurs on the skin of the legs, but it can develop anywhere on the body, Healthline explains. While it usually effects the surface layers of skin, cellulitus can sometimes spread to deeper tissues, including lymph nodes and the blood stream. Cellulitus that spreads can become life threatening. A significant portion of cases result from a skin abrasion or cut that allows bacteria to enter. Doctors usually treat cellulitus with a regimen of oral antibiotics.
