I am frequently a victim of cellulitis . Doctors have looked for a blood clot all over my body with a sound scan and in the leg. I suffer acute discomfort, which starts from shivering , fever and swollen legs. Sometimes antibiotics with SN-15 does the trick and I am fully cured. I had to operated on my leg twice. Kindly explain to me the causes for cellulitis and how I should get the rid of this problem for good.

Thanks for writing to us.
The recurrent cellulitis is commonly seen associated with diseases like diabetes, immune compromised states, chronic steroid therapy, etc. You need to get all these disorders ruled out and maintain good hygiene to avoid recurrent infections.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
