In brief: Topical antibiotics

If the infection is local then topical antibiotic can be used.
If it is deeper or more widespread then oral antibiotics. You would save more money by going to see your local physician. Then you will have a way to follow up by the same physician who treated you. This continuity of care is more important to your final outcome.
