Dear P Krishnamurthi,
You certainly need to change the antibiotics for the lacerations
as the cefixime
is unlikely to help such kind of infections of skin. Secondly, having much higher sugars for the wound to heal faster, which need a temporary insulin therapy
. Adding another dose of oral medications is not the soultion as of now as they do not work efficiently when you have ongoing infection. Certainly to stop speading of the infection, please do make sure you add insulin for time being and change to appropriate antibiotics and needless to say, wound has to be cleaned properly. Take care.
