Can you upload a photo of the lesions?
Did the culture show staph?
Where on your body are the lesions located?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
We are on opposite sides of the planet....our time zones are a bit out of sync.....
The photos and documents did not load. Can you re-attach them using the paperclip on your screen?
Thank you for the microbiology report.
Sensitivity testing results were not provided but, in any event, the bacteria isolated is one that is commonly associated with boils.
You are receiving the correct treatment. That being said, if the boils are continuing to return again and again then the next step would be to have a complete medical examination looking for any underlying immune system deficiency you might have.
Of course, moving to a cooler climate might help also as well as washing with a high quality soap at least once a day.Here is an excellent article from a highly respected source that you might find helpful:
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

Yes. I believe it is time for the more extensive exam.
You are already on a very good antibiotic....
You can try some triple antibiotic ointment available over the counter.
Dove soap is good.
I hope you feel better soon.
I would be very interested in learning how things turn out. That being said, since you have not given any positive feedback as of yet, I have not been paid so I can't return any monies to you......
So. What can you do?
