Have boils on stomach. Have a big medical history. Have been on medication at times. What to do?

I am 49 and I've had chronic MRSA for 13 years. Long history but in the smallest nutshell, in 1999 I got a stomach virus that put me in the hospital for a week. I kept sayingihurt in my stomach but was told. Pulled muscles and sent home.4 weeks later I'm backin the same hospital with pneumonia, the a month later diagnosed with Astsma. I was a professional singer who never smoked and all of a sudden I have serious upper respretory stuff. While in a small local hospital they were have trouble getting a vein for an IV a head with no gloves came in and hooked up my IV. 4 days later I broke out in 20 boils on my stomach, went to doc and she had never seen anything g like it and gave me bactrum. She didn't diagnose fore six mnthsand by ten about 40 boils. I found MRSA on line and had them do a culture. My immune system was compromised for another 4 years due to the stomach virus I told you abou in the beginning. I had a hernia in my abdomin and my stomach had gifted up trough it. I was breathing bile straight into my lungs at night. By then damage done to vocal cords and lungs. I do IGIV once a month and in 2006 I was hit in a araccident. Broke some bone and cartilage in my left knee and tore a tendon in my thigh. I had surgery. And the arthritis set in. All the pressure put on the right leg has caused major damage there a swell. I went to see an ortho surgeon and he looked at my MRI and x-rays and introduced himself to my 70 year old mom. I was 45 at the time, he said I needed both knees replaced and he was scared to do a knee replacement because of my staph. Through the 13 ears my staph has changed since taking the IGIV I get sinus, upper respitory and bladder infections that we try oral antibiotics and usually I Ed up on Vanc. After my 11th pic line they gave me a power port. I am now struggling with almost crppiling panini my legs. Not just my knees although they're the worst but all through my tail bone into the bones in my thighs and all theway to my feet. I cn Radly's walk on the left leg and I'm not positive due to my young age if it's just a matter of replacing the kee or if something else is wrong. I laid down to write this and I cried just because I'm hurting that daly and I'm not a cryer. I've been trough a lot and I don't know where to turn. Thank you Christy YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for writing to us.
The boils that you have on the stomach are likely to be due to infection in the area. You need to get a swab culture from the area done to choose the antibiotic best suitable for you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
