Hi, welcome to our site. I am Dr Saumya Mittal.

Read your query. That is a very significant question and i appreciate your problem. I will try my best to answer your query

You will probably need an antibiotic.
I would suggest you send the culture from the pus so we will know exactly what type of bacteria is there and what is the exact antibiotic it responds too

Meanwhile continue dressing with betadine.
And please stop switching over the counter medicines on your own.
Medicines are not for you to decide.
Even doctors, who have studied about what they prescribe make mistakes.
Imagine what you must be doing.
