Personally, I'd take her back just to get a diagnosis. It may not be bacterial in nature at all and may need to be surgically excised, drained, etc.

Plus, depending on the medication given before it may not be the best to use for this (if it is bacterial in nature), or the medication may not be as effective due to its age, or the vet may want to use a different dosage. Some expire rather quickly once they are dispensed for our use.
