Give it a little more time for the antibiotics to work-another day or two. If you develop a fever of 101 degrees or higher, you should go back to ER, if you have no fever but the infection is not improving locally, you should follow up with your doctor in his office. This is not an emergency and shouldnt be handled in ER.
