Nasal and facial area of every healthy person are considered to be one of the most prone regions to cellulitis. Also, it is known that the facial area absorbs a lot of dust and contaminants from the surroundings making you prone to certain viruses, bacteria and fungi as well.
Nasal cellulitis is a medical condition ordinarily caused by several types of bacteria and it affects soft tissue below the skin. In case a person gets this infection there is a great possibility of spreading it and affecting dermis and subcutaneous tissue in areas around the primary infection point.
Different researches in this and similar medical conditions’ area have discovered particular factors that increase your chances of developing this infection. These risk factors are caused by following difficulties: swelling, problems with lymphatic system and minor skin trauma (cuts, insect bite etc.).
There are various types of bacteria which can cause this medical condition in the nasal area. Streptococcus is definitely the most common strain of bacteria discovered here. Strep bacteria will normally spread very quickly due to the fact that the enzymes of these bacteria prevent the organic structure from containing the infection.
Nasal cellulitis caused by Staphylococcus bacteria may occur after a bite of an insect,animal or even human. Also, an injury under water or dirt could also cause this very common medical condition as the bacterium enters the skin through a minor cut.
If under water, this skin trauma swells with fluids, Staph bacteria will be introduced to the organic structure and result in this infection.
This medical condition is more common in individuals with bad blood circulation. It this case a person can develop nasal cellulitis due to a simple tissue injury, but it is possible to get it even if it doesn’t appear to be any injuries.
Numbers have shown that nasal cellulitis is one of most common of this type of infection in the United States. This mainly happens because many people ignore this kind of medical condition. Most of the infected people believe that a simple red nose is just a normal result of a cold.
The most obvious symptom of nasal cellulitis is pain caused by nasal inflammation ( the nose develops a tomato like color) which becomes redder and redder as time goes by. Subsequentky, the nose gets bigger and it hurts from irritations.
Other symptoms that probably appear simultaneously to those previously mentioned are:
▪ Swelling. The skin will probably imitate the texture of an orange peel and feel hot if touched.
▪ Blisters may also form on the damaged skin area.
▪ Some people that develop nasal cellulitis will have additional symptoms like fever,
▪ Headache also may come,
▪ Low blood pressure as well,
▪ And rapid heart rate.
