You're most welcome! It should start clearing up within a week once the med is started. I don't like Ciprofloxacin for Impetigo - the bacteria (STAPH) that causes it is often resistant. If you don't see at least 50% improvement (as in drying and less redness of the patches) within 7 days I would suggest getting a second opinion for a different antibiotic
Okay that's fine then - yes the scab typically dries up and fall off. Can take 2-3 weeks sometimes
