I have had cellulitis of the abdomen 3 times now. Mine is caused because of a sore not healing on my tummy because of the diabetes. My doctor told me that once you get cellulitis, it keeps recurring. The best you can do is keep free of any surface sores...treat them immediately...and hopefully the deeper infections won't set in then. I'm also trying to keep my blood sugar levels within the normal range so that further complications from the diabetes doesn't occur. I wish I had better news for you about the cellulitis not returning, but that is what my doctor told me. Good luck.
