This is not a post about me, but I am concerned about my older brother who is 22. He has had recurring bouts of cellulitis since June 2018, being hospitalised for intravenous antibiotics twice. This appears to be an ongoing thing where he keeps getting cellulitis despite the fact he has done everything the doctors have previously recommended to him i.e. elevation of legs, moisturising his leg and foot. He has also been on oral antibiotics a number of times but these don't appear to help since as soon as he finishes the course, the cellulitis appears to return even when the course has been extended. Does anyone here have any experience or knowledge of chronic cellulitis and at what point it is considered to be chronic? Also, what treatment is given for chronic cellulitis? Any help would be useful as I can't seem to find much information on Google about chronic cellulitis other than it is recurrent cellulitis. Many thanks!
