Cellulitis

Patients with lymphoedema are particularly susceptible to cellulitis, as the lymphatic system does not function adequately. 

Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the skin which may cause redness, heat, swelling, temperature and pain.  It can also cause lymphoedema if it damages the delicate lymphatic system.
