Does Cellulitis Cause Itching?

I have cellulitis and I itch a lot. Do those things go together?

Answer

Hello Buzz

Here is some information about cellulitus which is a bacterial skin infection. I am not seeing itching listed as a symptom.

Do you have reason to suspect that you have cellulitis?

The Mayo Clinic describes symptoms of pain, redness, swelling, warmth, and fever.

Please see your doctor right away if you think you have this condition. It could be something else causing your itching, such as hay fever or an allergic reaction, but it's best to have it checked by your physician!

Thank you for your question.
