normally after 3days they start scabbing your poor son he must have it really badly does he have antibiotics?

I would contact your Doctors as it sounds like he needs a course of antibiotics - esp with the infected ones, poor thing

I had it at 18 and the antibiotics really helped - I was really sufferering and felt awful but the antibiotics def helped speed up the recovery once I started them, don't know how this works though?

Hope he gets some help
