Depends on site: Of wound and bacteria that caused infection. Most skin infections are caused by staph or strep, and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) can be effective, but not always. If it is a surgical wound that got infected after GI or gu surgery, the bacteria could be gram negative. But the proper treatment always includes adequate surgical drainage.
