Cellulitis is the diabetic foot infection of the skin and subcutaneous fatty layer. They are classified into mild, moderate and severe based on the signs and symptoms of local inflammation.
The symptoms would be pain and swelling in the affected limb .patients may have fever associated with chills and rigor.general unwellness maybe present.
People with diabetes, eczema or psoriasis may have a higher risk of developing cellulitis. It occurs when the bacteria enters the deep layer of the skin through a wound or sore. Diagnosis of cellulitis is easy if the early symptoms are observed. It does not require complicated tests. Blood sugar and total WBC counts may be raised depending upon the severity of the infection.
If the cellulitis is in the initial stage, it responds to antibiotics effectively.
The podiatric surgeon would examine the patients based on the symptoms and diabetic history. If there is an open wound, the doctor may do a debridement..kind of cleaning and may take a small bit of tissue from the wound to identify the type of bacteria causing that cellulitis.
At Madurai Foot Care Center, we treat cellulitis based on many factors such as - location, the extent of infection, the type of bacteria causing infection and overall health condition of the patient.
Sometimes,a cellulitis may progress to a life threatening limb infection called NECROTIZING FASCITIS if left untreated.
