Caption: Cellulitis. Close-up of the inflamed and bloodshot eye of an eight year old boy caused by orbital cellulitis. Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the skin and the tissues beneath it, usually involving Streptococci bacteria. The bacteria enter through a wound or break in the skin. The affected area becomes hot and tender. Cellulitis is usually treated with antibiotic drugs. People with immunodeficiency disorders or diabetes are more vulnerable to this type of infection. If left untreated, it may lead to blood poisoning, which can be fatal.
