2. Risk Factors for Cellulitis

Certain people are at an increased risk for developing cellulitis. These include people who have a weakened immune system, have diabetes, or have poor circulation. Those that have skin conditions that cause cracking or breaking of the skin, are IV drug users, or have had cellulitis in the past are also at an increased risk. People in these risk categories should take extra precautions to try to avoid breaks in the skin. They should be on the lookout for the first signs of the development of cellulitis.
