You will not get cellulitis as long as you treat your skin condition between your toes. There is a very easy way that is effective and does not cost a lot of money. You can use Tincture of Iodine between your toes. It will stain the skin orange for a while but it is very effective, Iodine kills bacteria, virus, yeast and fungus. Some athletes foot not only has fungus but also bacteria. That is why Iodine is so good. You can treat once or twice a day for two weeks and that should solve the problem as long as you do not have an allergy to iodine.
