Hello. Thanks for the question. Before you use meds, you should get the wounds treated topically. You can do that at home if you have electric clippers. You should clip the hair away from any punctures. You can then clean them out with a diluted hand soap/ water solution. After clipping/ cleaning, you can use Ceftin- 500 mg twice daily for 7 days. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
