my son been taking antibiotic amoxcilillin to treat his boils from infections and it just sames to not work and continue coming back,.
He's probably got a staph infection in his body and this is how its showing. These things require that the boil drainage be cultured and the appropriate medication ordered, and they have to be taken longer then you would for another infection. Sometimes it takes 2 antibiotics at a time. I was taking care of a lady with the same thing and sometimes you have to push the drs to pursue it like it should be. Amoxicillin would not be my drug of choice with boils.
