Oral antibiotics and piercing care?

I am taking prescribed oral antibiotics for a possible sinus infection. Will the medication also help for my slightly infected cartilage piercing? I figure it would at least help a little since it's not a topical cream applied to a certain area but distributed thru the bloodstream. I hope it can kill 2 birds with one stone, since my piercing is very slightly infected, but not getter worse or better with my daily cleaning regiment.
