Cellulitis in a patient of DM, advanced age with neuropathy must be treated urgently and aggressively with insulin and I/V antibiotics. Limb should be elevated. I & D when needed.

Without any harm to vitals it can b managed easily by ayurveda. Give simple dipan pachana and anuloman treatment. Shoth chikitsa upakram
