Cellulitis Causes, Symptoms And Treatments

Cellulitis Cause #2: Compromised Immune System

A human’s immune system, their skin, their tears, the acidity of their stomach, their white blood cells, they can all protect the body from being invaded by foreign pathogens. However, seniors, very young children and patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection have weaker immune systems, making it much more likely that they’ll contract an infection like cellulitis.

Weaker defenses give pathogens such as streptococcus or staphylococcus a chance to invade and can cause problems like cellulitis. Inadequate nutrition can also be a contributing factor as proteins, vitamins, and minerals are required for optimal functioning of the immune system.
