Erysipelas and Cellulitis

Erysipelas affects the upper layers of the skin. ... In cellulitis, the reddened skin is less clearly defined than it is in erysipelas, and it is often dark-red or slightly purplish. Unlike erysipelas, the infection caused by cellulitis reaches the lower layers of skin and the tissue beneath it.
