Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX
Your therapy is good and if you have infecton it should heal in 5-7 days.Just need to be sure that it isnt allergy.
You may take 150mg in 3 divided doses, it means 1 tablet(50mg) every 8 hours, or 100mg tablet,2 times daily every 12 hours. Do not take more than this, it wont be helpful and could have problematic side effects. If you notice pain under the right rib,jaundice, vomiting, nausea or any other unusual symptom you should visit doctor.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help"

I am also having a painful abscess under armpit. Doctor has advised to go for puncturing & draining. Should I have biopsy. The Abscess has grown to about 2 CM size.

Well, antibiotic that you are taking would affect positively on this too. Some doctors recommend to treat it by antibiotics, but if it is growing, painful and there is pus collection with fever it should be drained surgicaly. 2cm is significant size, you can follow its progression bext 1-2 days and then decide about treatment course. There is no need to take biopsy of abssces if pus formation is obvious.
