    Cellulitis which is mainly under the subcutaneous tissue is caused by staphylococcus or streptococcus. It may lead to the deep muscle clearance or diffuse connective tissue inflammation. Inflammation can spread to all around. The cellultis can affect the eyes which may cause the eyes to be dry and red. The eyes will also get affected through the contagious infection. If it is by the timely and effective treatment, the prognosis is good. Severe sepsis occurred. It is often occured on or other parts of the limbs. Sometimes it is occurred in a finger. It should be timely given plenty of antibiotic treatment. Once the eyes are contagious. We need to use the eye drops to release the symptom and take the anti-inflammation medicine to treat it. It is a thing that we must do.We need to protect the eyes carefully through the good diet and healthy rest.

    Cellulitis, which is an infection of the dermis, can affect both the eyes and skin. When we suffer skin ulcer, cut, athlete's foot or even a scratch can make our immune system weak and then bacteria or germs will get into and under our skin causing such a bacterial infection of tissue. As a result, you feel unwell and then have a fever. Cellulitis around the eye, so-called periorbital cellulitis, need urgent rescue. If it left untreated, life-threatening septicaemia, an abscess forming or muscle or bone infections will occur. In conclusion, it is contagious and you need to head to doctor ask for some painkillers or antibiotics.

    Cellulitis affects our eyes via infecting the orbit of eyeballs and eyelids. As a result of orbital infection, you may have trouble in moving your eyeballs and damaged vision. If there is no timely treatment, permanent damage to eyesight or even blindness can be caused. The situation of eyelids infection is less serious. It causes swollen eyelids.
