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.
