Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.
Yes, cellulitis can cause fluid to ooze from the skin of the leg or foot. Fluid oozing from the leg or foot can also be due to other conditions of the leg, such as chronic venous insufficiency, but if the oozing only started when the cellulitis developed, then the oozing is likely due to the cellulitis. When the oozing is due to cellulitis, the oozing will typically resolve as the cellulitis is treated. When the oozing is due to other conditions of the leg, the underlying condition may be more stubborn in some people than others, so getting control of the oozing may be more difficult in some people.
