boils on person with aids

Aug 1, 2010

I have a reacurring big boil on my back that is growing inside of previous boil that drained a few months back. Antibiotics not helping, any suggestions, boils are huge, bigger than a half dollar and very painful

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It may have to be surgically drained, in addition to taking antibiotics. It would also be helpful to know what bacteria are likely causing this so the correct antibiotic can be prescribed.
