Common Causes, Symptoms and Possible Treatments of Cellulitis

Cause 3: Scratches, wounds and cuts

Forcefully peeling out the protective layer of the skin through excessive scratching or any unintentional wound or cut can drastically impact the overall health of the skin by making it exposed to disease-carrying pathogens which can contaminate the bloodstream while giving access to the entry of dangerous infections. Wounds and cuts should be cleaned properly to avoid any possible invasion of pathogens. Proper precautions should be taken to block the entry of pathogens as their entry in the bloodstream can be life-threatening.
