Can I have a foot infection and not have pain?

Today I had a patient come in and he didn’t feel sick but he had a foot infection for the past few days. This is called cellulitis you can see the area of infection marked on the skin. His only symptom was some chills the last few days. He didn’t have any pain due to his neuropathy. What was the treatment? He was admitted to the hospital for medication by vein and possibly surgery to clean up the infection.
