Perhaps get her to take some very good probiotics to deal with the antibiotics that have killed all friendly bacteria in her gut. Can help with yeast infections to that we seem to get the moment we are put on any antibiotic!
Stopping an infection is very important. The antibiotics are doing their job! She needs to really be diligent about proper diet, lots of water, rest and get back to the doctor as soon as anything changes.
I found this info: Follow-up After the initial evaluation by a doctor, the patient may expect this type of follow-up:
* Daily follow-up of wounds for the first 96 hours to assess the possibility or extent of necrosis of wound
* Hospitalization for people with systemic disease
* Continuation of antibiotics until secondary infections clear
* Follow-up with a surgeon if necrosis of the wound is evident
