Two things, it's cellulite (not cellulitis) that you are concerned about. One-Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the soft tissue under the skin. It requires an antibiotic. Two- unfortunately cellulite is hereditary. My best friend who is 5'8'' and 115 has it. Some of those lotions aren't bad. They contain caffeine. Best thing to do honestly- bump up the cardio, limit salt, and go get a spray tan.  (+ info)

If my husband is taking strong antibiotics for cellulitis, could this cause me to have a yeast infection?


My husband recently developed cellulitis, and has been treated with some very strong antibiotics. We were sexually active twice in the same day that he received Rocefin (sp?) intravenously and began oral antibiotics, and I believe that I am developing a yeast infection. Is it possible that the two conditions are related?
----------

I think that it is quite possible. Candida yeast is present in almost all humans. It is an opportunistic organism that waits for the chance to overrun the body. When one begins a course of strong antibiotics, the medicine not only kills off the bad bacteria, but it also kills off the good bacteria that make up part of the immune system. Since your husband started the strong antibiotics, it may be possible that if there was candida in his system, it started to grow and overrun his immune defenses. When you and he engaged in sexual activity, he could have passed on to you more candida than your immune system could cope with.

Be sure that you and he both treat this, because unchecked, candida yeast will cause all kinds of problems. From thrush (that smelly white cottage cheese like discharge) to seemingly unrelated problems like leaky gut, gas and depression, yeast infection is nothing to be taken lightly.  (+ info)

what are the chances of dying of cellulitis?


i know what cellulitis is. But what i want to know is how often someone dies of cellulitis. what are the chances?? plz help
----------

This would be possible in a person who leaves this untreated and has many, serious underlying health problems. This would eventually lead to sepsis and then death if not treated. Most people who get this treated (and they do due to the pain in the area) do not die and this is successfully treated with antibiotics.  (+ info)
