    Erysipelas

    Erysipelas is a superficial bacterial skin infection skin generally
    caused by Strep A bacteria. It can spread with alarming rapidity as
    it invades the cutaneous lymphatics.

    While some classify it as a "form of cellulitis," it actually can be differentiated by the clear lines of demarcation of the infection.

    Symptoms include marked lines of infection, fever, pain, an overall achy feeling and swollen lymph nodes. Most cases involve the legs, and the second largest number of cases involve the face.

    Like any type of infection a lymphedema patient experiences, antibiotic treatment needs to start immediately so as to prevent septicemia or bacteremia.

    So it looks like he must have died from Septicemia

      Erysialas is a skin desease similar to Celulitis, and that it is a streptococcal infection

      Potentially fatal systemic toxaemia may occur in patients who remain untreated

      it is normally treated with antibiotics
