1 doctor agrees

In brief: The antibiotic

Would have treated the impetigo already.
As long as the lesion is no longer weepy , give it some time to heal. If swelling under the chin gets bigger , red, tender , it may mean there is pus developing under or an abscess is forming. If that is the case, you need to see your doctor again
