Impetigo with swollen lips

My boyfriend was diagnosed with impetigo at the hopsital this morning, and they prescribed antibiotics and an ointment. He has applied the ointment twice so far, adn taken 3 pills. However, his lips have swollen double the size they were when he went in at 10am this morning. should we go back to the hosptial now, or wait to see if the antibiotics will kick in soon?

Hello Ss,
Welcome here on hcm.
In my view you are suffering from allergy to the medicine you are taking.
So i will suggest you to consult your treating doctor.
