Hello,

Getting apsis at multiple site is an ondicator of poor personal hygiene. Most of the apsis are cause by bacterias residing over the skin surfaces when they got a chance to insinuate into deeper tissue layers as a result of breach in skin continuity, which may occur as a result of scratching or like.

As far as treatment is considered you need to to get the apsis drained in case it is large,for smaller apsis conservative management with oral antibiotics for 3-5 days is sufficient. For prevention you need to maintain a good personal hygiene.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Rohan Shanker Tiwari
