If : If the above treatments did not work, then you may be dealing with a bacterial infection (cellulitis). This would require antibiotics. See a doctor in order to make a diagnosis and give appropriate treatment.

Agree with Dr J: Your symptoms warrant additional history, physical examination and may be culture tests.
It would be prudent to see a doctor at your earliest. If you get fever, go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital.
Wish you good health.
