I was diagnosed as having celulitis on left leg. However now I am beig told it was reaction to betadine/savlon/dettol used at various stages when i was being treated in the hospital.Can reaction to such normal cleaning agents cause reactions like cellulitis?
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
