Ok background.

I have had three rounds of heavy antibiotics. Well the first one, the abscess was not cultured. The next one was and it was staph. I was given an antibiotic that was suspectable to the culture. Again, I had another abcess which was cultured and given a different antibiotic. I ALWAYS take my antibiotics as told. I have went to school for Medical Assisting and the boyfriend is a nurse.

Well low and behold, I feel what I believe is another abbscces in my armpit. I can't seem to get rid of it! I washed everything, threw away my razor etc. I even havd had to replacement my make-up since I had impetigo on my face. (Which also came back a couple of weeks ago)

Can anyone recommend something? I was never a fan of taking antibiotics in the past due to building up an immunity to them and not working as well in the future. I've done research papers on the hygeine hyposthesis and even one on MRSA itself.

Any input would be great.
