"The word cellulitis literally means inflammation of the cells. It generally indicates an acute spreading infection of the dermis and subcutaneous tissues resulting in pain, erythema, edema, and warmth."

Here is another site describing cellulitis.

"Cellulitis is most common on the face and lower legs, although skin on other areas of the body may sometimes be involved."

"Heart disease patients often exhibit dermatologic changes. Sometimes these skin changes are of paramount importance in making a diagnosis of the underlying cardiac disease."
