Facial cellulitis or cellulitis of the face is a type of skin infection which occurs on the face.
Sneezing – when droplets from the nose of infected person (or staph carrier) fall on an injured skin of another person. Staphylococcal folliculitis affects hair follicles on the face, scalp, neck, trunk or limbs but not the hands, soles and mucous membranes where there are no hair follicles. A furuncle develops from an infected hair follicle, when the adjacent skin tissue is involved. Cystic acne is a large collection lesions caused by oil and dead skin cells trapped in the sebaceous glands, mostly occurring on the face of teenagers.
Hidradenitis suppurativa are boils appearing in armpits, groin, anal area or under the breasts and inner thighs – areas which are often rubbed and are rich in the sweat and oil glands. A pilonidal cyst arises from irritated and infected hair follicles in the area between the buttocks, often due to prolonged sitting (during trips). Surgery is often required to remove the cyst completely. Cellulitis is an infection of the underlying skin tissue, appearing as a red, swollen, warm, tender skin patch of various size (Picture 3). A superficial skin infection called erysipelas is usually caused by streptococci or, rarely, by staphylococci (2).
Impetigo is a crust-forming staph infection of the skin, mainly occurring in pre-school children. Impetigo contagiosa starts like red bumps which rupture, ooze fluid or pus, and form honey colored crusts. Bullous impetigo mostly appears in infants in the form of vesicles of various size on the trunk or limbs. Ecthyma is a severe form of impetigo with thick crusts. Complications of impetigo are rare and include scars, permanent hypo- or hyper-pigmented skin patches and cellulitis. A red streak (from inflamed lymphatic vessel) is spreading from the wound toward the local lymph nodes (usually in the armpits or groin), which may be swollen and tender. Open infected wounds should be cleaned with a suitable antimicrobial solution and preferably dressed by a medical professional. In mild burns topical antibacterial ointments, like mupirocin, can be used to prevent infection.
Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) is an extensive red rash, like scald, caused by toxins released by Staphylococcus aureus. It mostly appears in children under 5 years of age who do not have enough antibodies to fight staph toxins. A disease may start as a common staph skin infection, like impetigo, from which toxins are released. Fever, irritability and skin redness may follow in a couple of days, and then red blisters, paper-like skin wrinkling and scalding appear in one or more skin areas. Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome is highly contagious and it often outbreaks as epidemic in kindergartens; in this case, children should stay at home. Mild staphylococcal folliculitis or furuncle may disappear in a few days or couple of weeks with good hygiene, showering and wearing fresh airy clothes.
In persistent skin infection, like carbuncles, oral antibiotics, like dicloxacillin or cephalosporin, are effective. Extensive skin infections, like in staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS), require intravenous antibiotics.

I have scabs from acne that are healing over, Im on Accutane, and my dermatologist decided to take a culture of an especially dry, scabbed area of my lips, and it came back that I have MRSA.
Hi, I’ve had staph about three times in the past eight months due to my living conditions in my college dorms. Hey, I know this has been a while, but did you ever find ANY true cure for this scalp issue. Cellulitis is an infection of the skin and is most often caused by the bacteria Streptococcus or Staphylococcus. If you develop a tender, red, warm, enlarging area on your skin, make an appointment with your physician as soon as possible to get treatment and to avoid complications that may occur if cellulitis is left untreated.
Your physician will usually be able to easily diagnose cellulitis by examining the affected area. Opening a blister or pus-filled bump with a needle, scalpel, or lancet after cleansing the skin. Typically, the laboratory will have preliminary results within 48–72 hours if there are many bacteria present.
Someone who appears to be very sick or who has other chronic illnesses that may complicate their recovery may need to be hospitalized to receive intravenous antibiotics.

A team of researchers at the Croatian pharmaceutical company Pliva, Gabrijela Kobrehel, Gorjana Radobolja-Lazarevski and Zrinka Tamburasev led by Dr. Folliculitis usually appears as a group of red bumps, which may develop into pus-filled blisters (Picture 1). Boils may appear as red colored nodules which are tender, itchy or painful. A boil often opens at some point of growth and drains pus. It most commonly appears on the neck (Picture 2), arms or legs as a red nodule up to 1 cm in size, and usually after some time opens and drains pus. When all these disorders merge, it results in a group of tender red nodules, under-skin lumps filled with pus and black-heads. An infection usually starts when Staphylococcus aureus (or group A streptococci, or rarely other bacteria) enter through the skin wound and spreads under the skin.
It affects deeper layers of the skin, it is painful, it may develop into an ulcer and leave scars. It may follow nail biting, finger sucking, wearing artificial nails, ingrown toenail, or may appear in people who constantly have wet hands (like bartenders or dentists).
Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in newborns is sometimes called pemphigus neonatorum. Connections between skin cells are cleaved by staph toxins, resulting in scalding. Treatment by intravenous and later by oral antibiotics usually results in complete healing in 5-7 days without consequences (7).
If MRSA is diagnosed, clindamycin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, levofloxacin, minocycline or linezolid may be used (2).
This is a difficult situation because the chemo increases the risk of infections and hampers healing as his doctor said. There is a wide range of causes that can cause generalized itching which is known as pruritus. We had to delete your photo because it is shows your face and we cannot be sure if that really is your photo. However, the scab on my lip is not hurting, swollen, really red, full of pus or any of the other symptoms of MRSA.
It is understandable that you are scared but you should be discussing these concerns with your dermatologist who has a better knowledge of your case. Some of them are bigger than others but most are small and it looks like blackheads aswell. My hand got a red itchy patch on the top and then went away now the back of my hand is mostly swollen as with my index finger. The second and third time, both infections were in my legs and left really dark bruises afterwards. These bacteria are able to enter the skin through small cracks (fissures), causing the sudden appearance of redness, swelling, and warmth in the skin. The involved area may rapidly become deeper red, swollen, warm, and tender and increase in size as the infection spreads. While you are waiting for the appointment with your physician, you can elevate the involved body part in order to decrease swelling. In addition to prescribing antibiotics, your doctor will likely want to make sure that your underlying medical problems, if any, are being adequately managed. It is caused by different types of bacteria but the most commonly affecting ones are streptococcus or staphylococcus.
The legs and arms are most commonly affected. Fever is usually present and the local lymph nodes may be swollen (2). With treatment, the symptoms should start to ease within 2 to 3 days, and completely resolve within 7 to 10 days. Triple-antibiotic (neomycin, polymyxin and bacitracin) mixtures can be found in pharmacies. Treatment should last up to 10 days, and administered 2 to 3 times a day.
Even though antibiotics may limit an infection and even clear it up, it is still the body’s own resources that are need to heal the area.
It is important to understand that bacteria do naturally occur on the skin even some highly pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria.
At the same time that the red itchy patch on the back of my hand showed up, the muscle in my arm just above my wrist also got a red itchy patch but this was more spotted and had disappeared at the same time as the back of my hand then re appeared as a more uniform patch swollen and red and not itchy..
There are several skin conditions that can cause tiny blisters and it may not be an infection.


Cellulitis is sometimes accompanied by fever, chills, and general fatigue.If the infection is left untreated for too long, cellulitis can result in pockets of pus (abscesses) or the spread of bacteria into the bloodstream (bacteremia). In addition to identifying the type of bacterium that is causing the cellulitis, the laboratory usually performs antibiotic sensitivity testing in order to determine the antibiotics that will be most effective in treating the bacteria.While waiting for the results from the bacterial culture, your doctor may want to start you on an antibiotic to fight the most common bacteria that cause cellulitis. It was patented in 1981, and was later found by Pfizer's scientists while going through patent documents. The risk factors include infection in upper respiratory system, lymphatic system and middle ear or teeth inflammation.
Antibiotics and isotretinoin may help in some cases, but surgical removal of nodules is often required (8). To relieve pain acetaminophen or ibuprofen can be used, if temperature especially if the temperature exceeds 102F° (39°C).
Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in adults with lowered immunity may be followed by life threatening pneumonia and sepsis.
Longer use should be avoided to prevent bacterial resistance. Some ointments may  cause dry skin, burning or rash. While a lump could be a lymph node, a patch may be fibrotic scarring that arises with prolonged and severe inflammation. However, there is no reason to immediately assume that the current lesions on your face is definitely a staph infection. And you should be using either oral antibiotics or topical antimicrobials as your doctor prescribes. For example pompholyx is a skin condition that can cause tiny blisters on the fingers that comes and goes. Blisters or pus-filled bumps may also be present.Cellulitis may be accompanied by swollen lymph nodes, fever, chills, and fatigue.
This class of antibiotics has been the cornerstone of antibiotic therapy for staph and skin infections for decades.
Once the final culture results have returned, your physician may change the antibiotic you are taking, especially if the infection is not improving.Mild cases of cellulitis in a healthy person can be treated with oral antibiotic pills.
Rarely, infection spreads toward the tendons and bones, or bacteria invade into the bloodstream. The dressing has to be changed and underlying skin cleaned every day until the boil heals completely. It’s better to get a second opinion and an all clear from the surgeon rather than leaving it till later when complications may arise.
In your deleted question you had mentioned that you are applying apple cider vinegar on the area.
You should consult with your family doctor and preferably see a dermatologist at this point since the condition is recurring. If you have not done so as yet, then you should consult with an ENT specialist (otorhinolaryngologist). CA-MRSA previously infected only small segments of the population, such as health care workers and persons using injection drugs. A stye or hordeolum is folliculitis affecting one or more hair follicles on the edge of the upper or lower eyelid. Carbuncles most often appear on the nape of the neck in persons with lowered immunity, friction of clothes or bad hygiene (9). It is only when these bacteria enter your body is very large doses (infectious doses), is able to thrive on broken skin or when your immune system is depressed that it may cause a disease. While CA-MRSA bacteria are resistant to penicillin and penicillin-related antibiotics, most CA-MRSA infections can easily be treated with commonly available nonpenicillin antibiotics. From what you have said thus far, it does sound like it is healing but there is no way for us to say for sure. Rarely, CA-MRSA can cause a deeper skin infection, which usually requires intravenous (IV) antibiotics to treat the infection. Staph bacteria can be very resilient and without using tried and tested topical antimicrobials, the bacteria can persist and the infection may recur. There is an additional strain of MRSA (hospital-acquired MRSA), usually found in health care settings, that is susceptible only to intravenous antibiotics, so admission to the hospital is often needed for effective treatment.
