im suffering an infection in my head. it is pimple like swollen and painful at the same time. it keeps on coming back like twice a month. i've done self medication by taking antibiotics like amoxicillin 500, cefuroxime 500mg but i cut it in half since it is a strong antibiotic. now im taking cefalexin 500mg 3x a day. i've searched in the net but im confused if it is folliculitis, staph infection or worst methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA). what do you think is it and how can i cure it. im am in a foreign land right now and i dont know exactly where to find a clinic so im hoping you can help me. thanks!
