I am currently battling staph infection, and right now staph is winning. I have had 4 abcesses from it in the past 3 weeks, and my fifth one is popping up now. I have been constantly on antibiotics and taking them as directed and untill they rre gone, but no more than a week after they are done another pops up. I dont know what to do anymore, I am in so much pain from being cut open, and feel drained all the time. What do i do? Could it be an underlying medical condition causing them. Im confused and at my wits end.

I agree it could be MRSA and the DR. can do a panel to see what antibiotics this infection is resistant to. My opinion he should have done the panel first then started a pic line. That's how they got rid of my staph infection, that I got from having back surgery. The longer it is left basically untreated the harder it will become to treat and easier for you to develop staph again. Pills take to long to break down and start to treat an infection. Iv antibiotics are much quicker. now the only thing the antibiotic pills are doing is killing off your good bacteria. Back to the DR, for you and if you can't be treated correctly go to the ER.
