For three of the abscesses he has gone to the doctor and gotten Keflex. I've made sure he took all of the pills, I set alarms so we would remember. A fourth he got abx for but only took a day and a half of pills, the rest he hasn't gone to the doctor for. For one the doctor lanced it, one we caught early enough that the abx took care of it before it was big, but the rest have drained or burst.
I know that 7 abscesses in that short a time is too many, but I don't know enough to suggest what might be wrong, or how to fix it. His mom thinks he has a bacteria or infection in his blood, but she thinks everything is an infection and inflamed scraped knuckles need a round of abx . I lean towards over-colonization of a bacteria on his skin, but again I'm just grasping at straws.
