You seem to have developed recurrent furuncle/hair follicle infection.Was it treated with any anti biotics before.Were you investigated for your diabetic/nutritional/immunological status?
Kindly undertake Blood counts/Chemistry(FBBS/PPBS/UREA/CREATININE)/Urinalysis and Elisa/Tridot for HIVStatus.
Specifically the Pus from the lesion to be sent for Microscopy and Culture and Sensitivity Tests also.
These tests are required to find out any hidden causes.
On receiving the reports pls consult a Dermatologist/Internal Medicine Specialist to manage your general condition and also treat the furuncle as per the Lab reports.
