    I have cleaned the wound several times and wrapped it with neosporin a few times and also used a betadine sugar mixture paste, but the foot is still slightly swollen.

    will the duramycin help fight the infection?

    or

    can you tell me what duramycin-10 is good forother than CRD?

    thanks!

    That is for respiratory. For wounds (bacterial infection) you need Penicillin. Injectable is preferred.
