How Long Do You Take Antibiotics For Cellulitis
Should i still have pain three days after starting antibiotic treatment for cellulitis by surgical incision on posterior. Pain is better but significa?
Call your surgeon: Obviously pain is normal in the area of a surgical incision, particularly if you developed cellulitis. If it doesn't seem like it's getting better on the antibiotics, it is possible that an abscess is forming under the skin. See your surgeon for an exam. May also need to order imaging studies to try to see what's beneath the skin. Hope this helps, and best of luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Unless you are an MD: you shouldn't be making this decision, and you wouldn't ask. No legitimate healer will give antibiotics without assessing you. How were you planning on obtaining the drugs? These are not available without a presciption and it is illegal to buy them and treat yourself at least in the US. That is called "practicing medicine without a license" and is illegal.
