Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,

I would recommend you to take a course of oral and topical antibiotics.

I would recommend you to take tablet cephalexin 500 mg twice daily for 5 days and apply fusidic acid cream on the affected areas twice daily for 7-10 days.

For pain take anti-inflammatory medicine like tablet ibuprofen.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
