Hello phil;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally if there is any infection in body it is treated with antibiotics and then it is cured but sometimes there are infections due to some organisms which remain deep seated and can require a longer treatment duration or if the infection is treated with antibiotics for which the organism is not susceptible or it just has action of stopping the growth of bacteria rather than killing it.In such cases there can be recurrence of infection causing repeated cellulitis.Since your friend is 8 weeks pregnant the medicines should be used cautiously.There are few antibiotics from penicillin group like ampicillin;amoxycillin ;and even from cephalosporine groups which can be safely used.So please get her to see a doctor and he will see the type of infection and then decide the antibiotic according to the infection and her body weight.
