Hi!,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Seem you are getting folliculitis leading to abscess...you need to take good antibiotic for a longer time along with some topical creams like mupirocin (bactroban)....keep the area clean.
take care,
Dr.chawda

HI.
Take a course of cefadroxil 500 mg twice daily for 7 days. This will help you for the acute episode. Start applying T bact cream once daily at night in your nostrils, umbilicus, under arms, nailfolds for 2 weeks. This will take care of the carrier state of the pathogenic bacteria. Revert back after doing this.
