Is this diagnosis confirmed by doctors? because cellulitis causing spasms is very rare dz. in simple term muscle cellilitis or sepsis. the treatment is ANTIBIOTICS. please take thorough course of it that will help prevention of sepsis and also you can go for drainage of abscess if advised. investigations are important to be considered.
thank you.

Antibiotic regimens are effective in more than 90% of patients. However, all but the smallest of abscesses require drainage for resolution, regardless of the microbiology of the infection.Severely ill patients and those whose condition is unresponsive to standard oral antibiotic therapy should be treated with inpatient IV antibiotic.Medicine for pain relief are ibuprofen or paracetamol can be used.
