Default Tiger salamander sick

So this morning i noticed that my tiger salamander Jaku and a lot of black spots on his face that were not there yesterday. I cant afford to take it to the vet so i did some research. From what research ive done ive quarantined him from his usual environment. I plan on starting a antibiotic regiment of 125mg of ciprofloxacin in 1 liter of water for an hr a day and by putting silver sulfadiazine cream on the spots for 10-14 days (based on the research ive done). Any recommendations for adjustments to the antibiotic dose or overall regiment?

I can't really tell anything from your picture. I do know that some other species develop spots and such before they shed.
