Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, recurrent forming of abscess indicates that the condition was not treated properly, abscess pockets needs to be opened completely, under lying all the dead tissue to be excised, proper antibiotic is must and for that pus need to be sent for culture sensitivity test, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
