Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
It is clearly evident that the antibiotic suggested by them has not worked, and in this case, you need to go back to your primary physician and ask him to change the antibiotic to Cefotaxime 500 mg twice daily, which works well for boils, abscesses or carbuncles.
Hope this was helpful,
