What is the outlook for cellulitis?
The outlook for cellulitis is good in most cases if it is diagnosed and treated early with antibiotics. While most mild to moderate cases of cellulitis clear within about a week of starting treatment, antibiotic treatment may need to be continued for longer until all signs of infection have cleared.
