Pediatrician 's  Response
u should give medicine regularly without any fault like medicine are finished bring tomarrow or during visit anywhere, forgot to take medicine alongwith. give medicine as u give food to ur child regularly. consult regularly to ur pediatrician because as ur baby`s weight increase dose of medicine will be increased. usually medicine will stop after the completion of 2 years of seizure free interval. if seizure come during treatment, times start again from day 1.

Welcome to healthcaremagic community forum..
Childhood absence seizure usually disappear as she grows older. Most of them disappear by the time she reaches adolescence. However, she needs to be on medications untill she is seizure free for atleast 6 months.
The skin boil is unlikely to be due to the medication.
