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.

These can vary depending on the type of bacteria and where the infection is, if you caught it in hospital or at home, etc. As always, finish all the med! ...Read more
