Hi, I will take a while for the infection to go out because its on the skin, its takes time to work, I had one on my harm about 3 months ago and I had IV antibiotic for 24 hours and after that by mouth, it hurt so I took some Tynelol for the pain, and one more thing I had to change antibiotic because the one I was taking wasent working for me. The antibiotic kills the bacteria, and they way you will see if its spreading his to take a marker or pen and make a line where its red, around your bump and if in one day it goes over the line I think you have to go to the ER again because the infection is spreading and your antibiotic his not working much, so try that and let me know, take care.
