1. Pay attention to inflammation, redness, and warmth. These are the tell-tale sign of cellulitis. Inflammation, redness, and warmth in the affected region of your body will likely be the first signs of infection. Patients should monitor their infection closely. Consider: Inflammation and redness might occur after some pain at the point of infection. Once you notice inflammation and redness at the point of infection, you should monitor it closely as the infection can spread very quickly. If the infection turns from red to a purple or violet color and expands, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
2. Observe a central area that is swollen and potentially filled with pus. A good indication of cellulitis is that we can observe a central area – the initial place of infection – that is abscessed and swollen. This initial place of infection is often filled with pus. Treatment might, in some cases, demand that the abscess is drained.
3. Report sensitivity and pain to touch the skin. Many patients inflicted by cellulitis report sensitivity to the infected area if touched. While this sensitivity or pain might be minimal at first, it can quickly develop into a much more intense level of pain and discomfort. If your pain increases in intensity quickly, contact a medical professional.
4. Feel a heat or warmth radiating from the infected area. A common symptom of cellulitis is that the infected area is warm or even hot to the touch. At first this warmth might seem like nothing, but it can quickly escalate and cause discomfort to the patient. In addition, heat or warmth radiating from the infected area is an indication that the infection is spreading and expanding, possibly becoming systemic.
