I have diabetes since 2011. I had an abscess Nov. 7th and got it cut open and drain under my left breast. I been taking clindamycin 3 times a day since last Saturday when I went to the ER. I am packing it, but I have another large one on my left flank with low grade fever of 99.9. I also had a small one burst on its own today. I drain it, clean it and cover with a band-aide. Should I go back to the ER or wait until my temp is 102? Is there anyway to prevent these? Why do I only get them on the left side of my body? That weird. Nothing works and I'm tired going to the ER every 3 months.
