    Are they just a one time episode or recurrent?any prior history of shaving? And who recommended the antibiotics? was it a dr or self medication? And you also didn't put the dosing(possible under dosing) which might be the reason why it persist. You can use an NSAID in the interim like diclofenac but I think its best you let your dr see you so that the correct antibiotic can be administered following a proper evaluation. Self medication is not a good thing too.
