Hello there...I can understand your concern. It is not advisable to simply prescribe the antibiotics over the phone. We will have to examine once before suggesting anything as it can cause allergic side effects. Plus the swelling is looking very big. It is important to rule out any vascular compromise. So kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
