Work with your health care provider to set yourself achievable goals. These can be reviewed after a short time to avoid getting stuck in habits that don’t

Keeping your skin properly hydrated and crack-free is essential in preventing infections such as cellulitis. Avoid taking very hot showers and moisturize twice daily with an emollient based product.* This will help to maintain natural oils in the skin and keep it hydrated.
