I have been previously diagnosed with cellulitis on my face

I have been previously diagnosed with cellulitis on my face and given 500mg antibiotics 4x per day, then 2 days later changed to shingles on my face and given valltrex 1 gram 3 x per day. Should I continue the antibiotics?? I am leaving on a 2 week trip SE Asia tomorrow.

I was diagnosed with cellulitis in October of 2016 and took two prescriptions of antibiotics. When diagnosed, I had swelling and puffiness around my left eye. The antibiotics quelled the swelling and puffiness but I seem to still have some sympthons of the cellulitis because the left side of my face close to my eye feels stressed(for lack of better description). What should I do and/or what kind of doctor should I see?

Hi I was diagnosed with cellulistis about a week and a half ago. It started out as a minor red rash under my left eye. It hurt pretty bad. Now I have been taking antibiotics since then. The red is gone, no pain, just minor tenderness on my face. I have a few scars here and there now. Are the scars a good thing? Am I getting better?

I have recently be diagnosed with cellulitis on my face from wax burns. I am on oral cephalexin 500 Mg. I also am applying newsprint to the burns. Is this enough since the infection is on my face? Today is only day two of antibiotic but my eye feels funny and my left side of my head has been hurting. Could be tension I guess.
