Brief Answer:

Or and topical antibiotics

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have noted your concern. I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected area in "Reports Section" so that I am able to have a look.

For a skin infection, I would normally suggest an empirical oral antibiotic e.g either Amoxicillin or Cephalexin 500mg, thrice daily for a week.

In addition to this, I suggest you apply a topical antibiotic e.g either Neosporin ointment or Mupirocin 2 % ointment, twice daily.

These are prescription medications and I advise you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
