I have an 18 month old daughter who has had 6 abscesses in the past 9 months They have progressively been getting larger she has one now that is being treated but the last one was the size of a golfball and put her in the hospital on IVs and required surgery are their any conditions you can think of that may be causing this.
Hi i did review your concern. recurrent abscesses can be due to immunodeficiency due to malnutrition or primary immunodeficiency. If she is well fed I would recommend you to get her tested for primary immundodeficiency disorder especially chronic granulomatous disease where there is a enzyme defect in neutrophils and leads to formation of recurrent abscess.
I hope this helps. wish you all the best. Thank you for using healthcaremagic.
