Cellulitis on my toe

I have Cellulitis on my big toe it's been there for about 5 days. I've seen a doctor meds were prescribed, the doc said in a few days if it don't get better we have to cut it open. My question is what would be the reason for cutting my toe open?

the only way to do this is to cut it open
