Whoops, just changed the "RCS" to "RCT" on my prior post.
Hmm, cellulitis of the lower extremity... Does the patient have distal pulses? I ask because elevating an ischemic limb may be contraindicated. I don't think adding warmth to infected skin increases the risk of sepsis. Increasing circulation as you described might help with antimicrobial penetration and clear the infection quicker.
