Caption

Close-up of the ankle of a 77 year old woman with the skin infection cellulitis. The skin is red and inflamed. Cellulitis is 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 generally treated with a penicillin antibiotic to prevent the inflammation spreading to the bloodstream. Untreated cellulitis may progress to septicaemia or, occasionally, to gangrene.
