Three years ago I had a large abscess on my stomach, which I let pop on it's own. I went to the doctor right after it popped and he swabbed it, and it tested positive for MRSA. I was put on antibiotics and it cleared up after a week or two. About a year after that, I got another abscess on my face, and it grew fairly big. My face swelled and I could barely open my right eye. I went to the same doctor and he told me it was another abscess, but he did not test it for MRSA since I had already had it before. He prescribed me antibiotics and it eventually popped. Ever since then there is still a hard knot on my face where the abscess once was. Is this normal? I do not have any bumps from my previous abscesses so I am concerned as to why I have a bump on my face still.
