Caption: Cellulitis. Close-up of the ankle of a patient suffering from the skin infection cellulitis. The skin is red and inflamed, caused most commonly by Streptococci bacteria. The affected area may be hot and tender, and the patient may have symptoms of fever or chills. The bacteria usually enter the skin via a wound. Cellulitis is usually treated with a penicillin antibiotic to prevent the inflammation spreading to the bloodstream. Un- treated cellulitis may progress to septicaemia or, occasionally, to gangrene.
