Hello I have gone through your complaints. Just you need to wait for the antibiotic action. If the condition is worsening then it's better you take injectable antibiotics which will be having faster action and I think your wound needs regular dressing. Tetanus toxoid should be taken.
Thank you. Good day. Hope so you recover soon
