I went to the hospital for an absess in my

Patient: I went to the hospital for an absess in my upper right cheek. They gave me antibiotics and pain meds but it is getting bigger and more painful what do i do?

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.It is clearly evident that t he antibiotic suggested by them has not worked, and in this case, you need to go back to your primary physician and ask him to change the antibiotic to Cefotaxime 500 mg twice daily, which works well for boils, abscesses or carbuncles.Hope this was helpful,Regards
