I have cellulitis on my face. It is now swollen. Will it get back to normal when tye cellulitis is gone? Will it leave permanent damage?

It has been swollen for a few days. Been taking antibiotics that the doctor recommended me

It shouldn’t leave lasting damage, but may make you susceptible to further episodes of cellulitis. Do you have MLD for existing lymphoedema? If yes, mention this episode to your therapist he/she may treat head/neck/face to relieve any residual swelling.

If not, try YouTube for facial lymph drainage sequences.
