I have a small labial abscess. It drained yesterday- bloody pus. Do I need to see my regular doc for oral antibiotics?

Thanks for this question
Yes, you do
You need to have it inspected to make sure there isn't any additional drainage required
Also, you may need a short course of oral antibiotics to eliminate any residual infection.
