Forum and Discount Information:
Cellulitis is an infection of the skin and underlying tissues that can affect any area of the body. Not to be confused with cellulite - the cottage-cheese-like, lumpy fat often found on the hips, thighs, and buttocks, primarily of women - cellulitis begins in an area of broken skin, like a cut or scratch, allowing bacteria to invade and spread, causing inflammation, which includes pain, swelling, warmth, and redness.
Disorders that create breaks in the skin and allow bacteria to enter, such as eczema and severe acne, will put a child at risk for cellulitis. Chicken pox and scratched insect bites are also common causes. Cellulitis may also start in areas of intact skin, especially in people who have diabetes or who are taking medicines that suppress the immune system.
Cellulitis can be caused by many different types of bacteria, but the most common are Group A Streptococcus and Staphylococcus aureus. In special cases, other bacteria can cause cellulitis. Cellulitis after a cat or dog bite may be caused by Pasteurella multocida bacteria. Cellulitis due to Pseudomonas infection occurs after nail-puncture wounds through sneakers. Other types of bacteria from fish and farm animals can also cause cellulitis.
One specific type of cellulitis that can occur in children
and requires close monitoring is periorbital cellulitis, an infection
of the eyelid and tissues surrounding the eye. It can be the result
of minor trauma to the area around the eye (such as an insect bite
or a scratch), or it may be the extension of another site of infection,
such as sinusitis. Periorbital cellulitis is treated with antibiotics
and closefollow-up. If untreated, it can progress to orbital cellulitis
(infection of the eye orbit, or socket), a much more severe infection
that results in a bulging eyeball, eye pain, restricted eye movements,
or visual disturbances. This is an emergency that requires hospitalization
and intravenous antibiotics.
Signs and Symptoms
Cellulitis begins as a small, inflamed area of pain, swelling, warmth, and redness on a child's skin. As this red area begins to spread, the child may begin to feel sick and develop a fever, sometimes with chills and sweats. Swollen lymph nodes (commonly called swollen glands) are sometimes found near the area of infected skin.
Cellulitis is not contagious. Prevention
You can prevent cellulitis by protecting your child's skin from
cuts, bruises, and scrapes. This may not be easy, especially
if you have an active child who loves to explore or play sports. Protective
equipment worn to prevent other injuries during active play can
also protect your child's skin: elbow and knee pads while skating,
a bike helmet during bike riding, shin guards during soccer, long
pants and long-sleeved shirts while hiking in the woods, sandals
(not bare feet) on the beach, and seatbelts while riding in a motor
If your child does get a scrape, wash the wound
well with soap and water. Apply an antibiotic ointment and cover
the wound with an adhesive bandage or gauze. Check with your child's
doctor if your child has a large cut, deep puncture wound, or bite
(animal or human). Incubation
The incubation period varies, depending on the type of bacteria
causing the cellulitis. For example, cellulitis caused by Pasteurella
multocida has a very short incubation period - less than 24 hours
after an animal bite. But other types of bacteria may have incubation
periods of several days. Duration Cellulitis usually
resolves after a few days of antibiotic therapy. However, it's very
important that the child receives the medication on schedule for
as many days, usually 7 to 10, as the doctor directs.
Your child's doctor can usually make the diagnosis of cellulitis by asking a few questions and examining the area of affected skin. Sometimes, especially in younger children, the doctor may also order blood cultures - samples of your child's blood that are examined in the laboratory for growth of bacteria.
Positive blood cultures mean that bacteria from your child's
skin infection have spread into the bloodstream, a condition known
as bacteremia. This can potentially lead to septicemia, a generalizedinfection
affecting many systems of the body. Bacteremia can also be a cause
of cellulitis in certain cases.
