Depends: It depends on what is causing the infection. Ciproflozacin treats many, but not all skin infections, and many other wound infections.

Gives it a chance: If the wound tissue has been invaded by a "bug" sensitive to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) it will help. It still doesn't heal the wound. It removes the offending agent and toxins slowing healing giving the body a chance to get the correct cells on site to get to work on the wound.
