Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Sevre contact dermatitis can cause clinical picture similar to cellulitis.
As a first line management, you can apply low potency steroid creams like betamethasone for symptomatic relief. If the lesion persists, it is better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.
Wishing all the best.
Thanks
