Our expert says:
You will have to consult your doctor for an examination and blood tests to exclude hypothyroidism, diabetes (which is often associated with PCOS and abcesses), insulin resistance or a hormonal imbalance (that can be the cause for you not falling pregnant). Diabetes also increases the risk for infections, which can explain the recurrent abcesses on your thighs. Exercise is very important when trying to loose weight.
Your doctor will have to prescribe a course of oral antibiotics to treat the abcesses. In the interim, you can apply Bactroban ointment.
