Cellulitis - Overview
Cellulitis is a type of skin infection caused by bacteria. People who might need cellulitis treatment can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe cellulitis prescription medication when appropriate to do so.
What Is A Cellulitis Infection?
A cellulitis infection is a bacterial infection of the skin, generally caused by certain types of Staphylococcus (Staph) or Streptococcus (Strep) bacteria. Cellulitis is a common condition, with over 14 million cases in the United States. Some people, such as athletes, prisoners, military personnel and intravenous drug users might have an increased risk of getting a cellulitis infection. While some cases of cellulitis are caused by bacteria sensitive to many medications, others are caused by resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Cellulitis can cause a variety of symptoms, including redness, pain, streaking and hardening (induration) of the skin that is infected. Cellulitis can also cause streaks of redness and can progress into a collection of pus known as an abscess. In serious cases, cellulitis can cause more extensive symptoms such as fever and organ damage.
Cellulitis - Treatment And Medications
While most cases of cellulitis respond to oral medications, some cellulitis infections require intravenous medications or a procedure to drain any abscesses present. The main class of medications used to treat cellulitis are antibiotics, and medications prescribed might include the following:
- Cephalexin (Keflex)
- Clindamycin (Cleocin)
