Staph Infections -I have just completed today a 30day antiobotic for a staph infection on my face, it’s healed some but not completely healed. I’m wondering should it have been healed by now or do I need to return back to my Doctor for further treatment?

    Even if the infection has resolved, the skin still has to heal. It may take some time after completing the antibiotics. Of course there is the possibility that the infection is persisting and you should see your doctor. Another course of antibiotics may be necessary or even different types of antibiotics should you be faced with a drug resistant strain. Your doctor will be able to advise you accordingly.
