... fucidin H. For the most part it seems to be clearing up. I got Impetigo from a pimple that was popped on my chin. The impetigo showed up as the pimple was healing, now the pimple is closed but it is inflamed and raised. Does this mean that there is bacteria trapped underneath the skin? Will 14 days of cloxacillin take care of this and ensure that it does not re-occur after treatment is complete? I am worried that I am not able to get the bacteria in the pimple with the topical antibiotics
Yeah hadn't heard of that at all. It sometimes might look worse before it gets better. It does take a few weeks to get rid of it even with meds. It takes 21 days for the innermost layer of the skin to migrate and become outermost layer, just be dilligent washing your hands after treating, that's best way to prevent reccurence.
