Hello all.

I have this breast abscess that doesn't seem to go away. I am 27 years old and had no previous health issues with no children but last May i was diagnosed with a breast abscess. They put me on Antibio for two weeks but no go, still had it.
I had to go the breast center and get several ultrasounds and needles aspiration and finally we decided to do and ririgation.
Two months later, i still have the same problem: Now i am seeing a different center and they suggest a surgery.
Redness and swelling is still happening.
What do you think i should do...
Thanks

Could anyone suggest what would be the best treatment for this
