Re: Infected Burn
Usually within 2 days, there is some visible improvement. Depending on the size and depth of burn and infected area, she may need oral antibiotics as well. I would note the red area around the burn, and if it is getting larger or more painful, swollen, I would take her to urgent care or ER today. If it is no worse today, but no better tomorrow, I would call Dr who treated her and let Dr. know the status. Any fever should be reported immediately, as that would indicate the infection is significant and perhaps systemic requiring more aggressive treatment.
