During February 2006 I contracted a cold (runny nose, sore throat, etc.) and began exhibiting symptoms of this on a Friday. On Monday I had to fly to another city on business and by Monday evening my eye was swollen shut. During a trip to the emergency room the next day I was diagnosed with periorbital cellulitis.
My question is this -- Has anyone ever heard of a case where changes in air cabin pressure can cause or aggravate an existing case of periorbital cellulitis? Thanks.
