About phlegmon - Cellulitis is not a contagious condition, as the pus is located deep and does not bind to the upper layers of the skin.
Any parts of the body can be affected, as they say, from head to toe. Most often, patients seek help when phlegmon affects the face or limbs, since in the first case it is very noticeable, and in the second it interferes with movement.
Phlegmon is a collection of pus. It begins with a small - a small inflamed area, which outwardly can not even be noticed.
As the process develops, a feeling of fullness arises, the skin acquires a reddish tint, and pain appears.
Since phlegmon has no borders, the infection can migrate through the bloodstream, so the general temperature often rises and weakness occurs. Lymph nodes can even increase near the abscess.
More extensive spilled abscesses may look like a volumetric formation of a bright pink hue. With a complication, skin fistulas appear and the contents flow out.
In addition to general weakness and an increase in body temperature (and this is 38-40 ° C), headache and dizziness, shortness of breath, a weak but frequent pulse, and even lower blood pressure may appear.
In no case should the development of the process be allowed, since pus can spread deeper down to the tendons, muscles, and even bones and organs. In the case of phlegmon, even there can be no talk of their self-opening.
