Could keflex still be working for my staph infection even if a new boil has popped up?

In brief: Cannot say

Since I do not know how long you have been on the Keflex it is hard to say.
If you have only been on it for a few days then it is possible for new lesions to occur.

In brief: Unlikely.

Especially now that most staph is keflex-resistant.
