In this post, my mission is to give some fundamental steps used in the practice of handling cellulitis skin infection. Cellulitis is a very usual medical condition of the skin and soft tissue, it can cause the following symptoms : redness, inflammation, heat the infected parts of the body and commonly hurts to touch the involved part of the skin and deeper tissues.
The purpose of dealing this medical condition is to reduce the intensity level of inflammation and hardness of the inflammation, reducing and complete removal of the hurt induced by disease and the removal of different rough signs, speed up the convalescence procedure and finally prevent the return of this rather serious infection. In most cases of cellulitis infection is treated with antibiotic drugs (if the patient is not allergic to the medication). It is very significant when you first visit a doctor to tell him if you are allergic to any form of drug, especially because many of antibiotics include penicillin just as one of its ingredients.
Antibiotics as a way of treating cellulitis disease of the skin and deeper tissue is usually taken by word of mouth and intravenously (depending on the severity and stage of disease).Mild cases of cellulitis infection are treated orally with antibiotics, treatment for cellulitis period lasts 10-14 days. During this period, it is crucial to take the prescribed medicinal drug till the end of therapy and never skip or stop taking the medicine earlier than the regular period. It is common for the viewable signs of disease to withdraw after a short period of therapy, although infection is not completely healed, so it’s fundamental to take the regular dose of medicament to the last tablet.
If the medical adviser determines to handle cellulitis intravenously and hold the patient in the hospital, we assume that it is moderate or harder case cellulitis skin infection. It is fundamental to emphasize that this type of infection can uncontrollably spread throughout the organic structure very quickly and really strong. In that case, it can be very dangerous to the health, even life of the patient. Just because of these causes, the doctor will keep the patient in the infirmary (usually 3-5 days) and then free him to household care.
It is fundamental to control the disease in certain balances so the patient may turn to home care.
After free to home care, check ups are every three days, then as the doctors determines necessary. Any changes in the skin during the treatment at home, which leads to worsening of the signs of infection, and other changes that may be due to infection must be instantly reported to a doctor. If the doctor is unavailable immediately go to the nearest hospital for exam.
Cellulitis disease of the skin and deeper tissue is very usual and there are drugs that successfully suppress the source of infection (bacteria). With handling it is needed to take the steps properly, so that the infection does not return. Statistically, 50% of patients have had recurring infection of cellulitis. In this case, the antibiotic intervention period lasts up to several months.
