Doctor

A:   I comprehend your worry about recurrent abscesses compromised by MRSA. Let me reassure you that MRSA infection is not directly related to PCOS, however Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome increase the levels of androgens or male hormones and this might increase the development of Acne.
I would suggest you to consider having treatment with contraceptive hormones to reduce your chances of developing acne which might help you with recurrences and also be extremely careful with your abscesses and avoid touching them to prevent re infections in other parts of your body. Wash your hands constantly and if pus is draining form your boils, consult your physician immediately for antibiotic prescription. I wish you a prompt recovery.
