WHAT is Abscess/Cellulitis (Acute Bacterial Skin Infection) ?

Abscess and Cellulitis are bacterial infections of the skin that usually begin from a scratch or bug bite and progress to a red nodule that fills with pus.

  • Abscesses are usually large and deep and show up with redness and painful swelling around an area filled with pus.

  • Cellulitis is an infection within the skin and the area just beneath it. This makes the skin red and tender, and can spread very quickly. 



Possible signs and symptoms of Abscess/Cellulitis (Acute Bacterial Skin Infection) include:

  • Red area of skin that tends to expand
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Pain
  • Warmth
  • Fever
  • Red spots
  • Blisters
  • Skin dimpling
