I had facial cellulitis. Symptoms started with my eyes... feeling of "scratchiness"when I blinked. It rapidly progressed to painful red eyes and painful swelling around eyes spreading to forehead above and cheeks below. I got in to see my primary physician within hours of symptoms. He gave me a Rocephin shot (1gram), gentamicin eye drops and pain medicine. The first 24 hours were rough. My doctor saw me on day 2 and repeated the Rocephin shot...my symptoms were DRASTICALLY IMPROVED!! I think the key is early diagnosis and treatment!!
