Abstract: Prednisolone reduces the median length of hospital stay by 1 day for patients with erysipelas. (SOR: B, based on a single RCT.) However, patients who are hospitalized with necrotizing cellulitis are more likely to have used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs than those hospitalized with nonnecrotizing cellulitis. (SOR: C, based on a retrospective study.)
