Tests

The symptoms of cellulitis may resemble other skin conditions. Always consult your child's physician for a diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually based on a medical history and physical examination of your child. Blood and skin samples may also be taken to confirm the diagnosis and the type of bacteria present.
