Cellulitis vs Dry Skin

How close does cellulitis look like dry skin? Are they close enough it could be misdiagnosed?

Ok, full story: I have a one year old and I noticed a rash on her elbows (both) yesterday night. Today at lunch the daycare called and said they had a child just diagnosed with cellulitis. I took her to the doctor right away and was told its just dry skin. She does not have a fever and is acting normal, but it just seems like a really high coincidence. She has never had a rash before. I'm not normally one to question the doc but cellulitis seems really dangerous if not treated. So I am trying to decide if I need a second opinion or if they are so obviously different that there isn't a question.
