I developed facial cellulitis, and at first I thought I was about to have a major pimple outbreak. The redness and swelling resembled the look and feel of a huge zit before it surfaces.
However, I soon knew that it had to be more than a pimple, because my tongue felt a bit swollen and sensitive. Also, the red area of my face burned.
Curious but not yet desperate enough for a doctor, I waited. Then, I developed a fever. I knew I had to go.
The doctor said it was facial cellulitis. The treatment for it was a 14-day course of antibiotics.
