Cellulitis at PI?

I heard from the Captain at PI that my son has been hospitalized with cellulitis on his 5th day in boot camp.  They are reassuring that chances are fairly good this won't set him back but he is missing out on the first days of bonding with his platoon right now.  Anyone have any experience with this and the risk of it recurring during the next 3 months finishing his training? I'll try browsing through earlier psotings to see if there's a discussion of cellulitis injuries.See More

That group shipped on the 20th, so that should be your group. You can find other parents and loved ones to share with there. I am the moderator for the Maine group however; your right it has not been too active. Most will post in their groups. Hope this helps you.
