Hi I recently have had 6 stitches that got infected, The stitches were put in on the 12th aug and removed around 14days later due to the infection I ve since then been on antibiotics (flucloxacillin 500mg caps) 1 tablet 4 times a day and it seems like it s not getting any better, it doesn t seem worse either though. My doctor confirmed it was a staph infection and that I should just keep it covered and continue with the antibiotics until it s healed, when its covered it weeps though and seems to look a lot worse and I feel as though it s making it harder to for the healing process to begin, when I leave it uncovered it drys up and seems to start forming a scab. I m wondering what else I can do to hurry the healing process and rid of the infection. And if putting otocomb otic ointment will help?

My cat scratched my big toe last Friday, between the nail and the quick. By the next morning it was infected. I ve been soaking it and treating it as best I can, but it doesn t seem to be healing. Today I noticed that it s starting to feel kind of tingly and numb. What should I do?
