If it is a big boil then it needs I&D and oral antibiotics. In case the infection is more extensive then IV antibiotics must be used. Choice of antibiotics depends on local resistance, labs and culture results and preference of the physician. ...Read more
Yes: If the dose of antibiotics was insufficient or the course was not long enough, yes, staph infections can recur. The other concern would also be if the bacteria developed resistance while on therapy. However, there is always a chance that some other organism has caused the infection; it depends on the site and the timing. I would discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

More effective antibiotics are available. ...Read more

Probably not: There is no "natural remedy" likely to help. If the infection is superficial, just keeping it clean and dry may be sufficient.

Best to see a doctor (with science-based training) for professional advice. ...Read more
