Hi, Welcome to HCM. Cellulitis is an emergency and to be treated fast, otherwise it would go for complications. If it is not resolved even after 10 day course of Bactrim, then it is better to change the still better antibiotics like 3rd generation Cephalosporins or higher antibiotics. Dr S.Murugan

doctor1 MD

Along with bactrim you should also start anti inflammatory drug to relieve swelling, edema. And yes, you can apply warm water pad. It will regress in 7-10 days. Please hit thanks.

Hi Initially, it has to be treated with oral antibiotics and local antiseptic lotion. The surgery can be decided depending upon the result after using the above medicines. Regards
