Caption: Cellulitis and intertrigo. View of the abdomen of an obese woman suffering from cellulitis, the red area here held between the hands (above centre). Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the skin & tissues beneath it, typically caused by strepto- coccus bacteria. At lower centre, between a skin fold is a red inflammation known as intertrigo. Intertrigo is caused by repeated rubbing together of two skin surfaces, and is most common in obese patients. The affected area is moist and there may be scales or blisters. A person is obese when they weight 20% or more over their ideal weight. Cellulitis is treated with antibiotic drugs; weight loss helps to cure intertrigo.
