Hey guys

Got a question is it normal to be itchy after having cellulitis😮

Completely normal. Try not to scratch, but instead keep some emollient handy, and smooth a blob gently into the area to keep the skin healthy.

I am NOTa doctor,but this happened to me. If you live near the Thames Valley come to the Wellness Day aftercancer.com/wellness and ask the skin experts about this.

When you see your doctor, ask if they can suggest a suitable La Roche Posay skincare product. I know these are recommended in numerous US hospitals, and I find their clinically-trialled products excellelent.

Yes and it is wise to use a bland product so as not to cause any more irritation. So Hydromol or Epaderm would be perfect.
