    Not necessarily. Oral antibiotics MAY be sufficient. You should see your doctor with regards to having your wound reassessed. S/he will then decide whether you need intravenous (IV) antibiotics or whether oral antibiotics are what are required.

    Go back to a doctor or the hospital. You really should have gone back when it showed no sign of getting better before you finished the course

    IV antibiotics can usually be done on an out patient basis.
