Our expert says:
Even people with good hygiene can get abcesses due to various reasons, high staph aureus levels on the skin, low immunity, low iron levels etc. Please see your doctor as I think you need antibiotics before the abcess becomes so big that you need an operation to drain it. Ask him to check your full blood count and iron levels. Try washing with antiseptic soap and treat any pimples and scratches immediately with Bactroban ointment
