Hi Mildred, Cephalexin seems to be the antibiotic of choice for both abscesses and staph' infections. If the abscess is large in diameter or deep it really needs dressing every 3 days with the wound packed with dissolvable antibiotic gauze (Algol?) for up to 4 to 6 months until the tissue and blood vessels have grown back and the wound is fully healed.
