Specific skin and soft tissue infections can be characterized by their visual appearance, including vesicles, bullae, folliculitis, crusted lesions, papular lesions, ulcerations, and cellulitis. Nonpurulent cellulitis is an acute, spreading infection of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. Cellulitis is most common in tissue damaged by trauma and in extremities with impaired venous or lymphatic drainage (eg, the arm after mastectomy, the leg after saphenous vein harvest for coronary artery bypass grafting).
