Symptoms of Cellulitus
Were you looking for information about Cellulitis Symptoms? Symptoms of cellulitus is a common misspelling and variation of cellulitis symptoms.
Symptoms of cellulitis can occur at the location of the infected skin (local symptoms) or they can occur on other parts of the body (systemic symptoms). Symptoms that occur at the location of the infected skin have four common characteristics: redness, warmth, swelling, and pain when touched. Symptoms that affect the whole body may cause a person to experience flulike symptoms, such as fever, chills, and muscle aches.
In rare cases, people with cellulitis can develop complications, including toxic shock-like syndrome, spreading of the cellulitis to the heart (endocarditis) or bone (osteomyelitis), an abscess (a pus-filled cavity resulting from inflammation), or even loss of life.
