I am usually very healthly but for the last 10 months I have been gettin abcesses...first on my buttock cheeks, then on my tail bone...I got one on my chin an now i have just got one on stomach just below my belly button...I get them about every other month, I had one surgerically on my buttocks it was removed as it was so large. I have been to a dermatoligist who said its strep positive gram. But I have no answers. They normally start with a small like pimple then go into like a yellow black core an then go into huge lumps which eventually burst after hot compresses..around the edges it turns blueish black an then the greenish black core comes out along with large amounts of pus...I usually get a high fever an take ciprobay anbiotics and alot of pain killers an then it goes. Please can anyone help.....this is terrible

  • Impetigo may be the cause, but I don't know why yourdoc wouldn't have caught it. Do you play soccer or some other body-contact sport? Also, have your blood sugar checked.
