Default I have found a litter of kittens that a stray left in my building. I brought them in

My goodness, this sounds like a very strange thing. If these truly are abscesses, they should respond to antibiotics. I would be sure each kitten is treated, even if they do not have an abscess and be sure to use the antibiotics for long enough. One kind of bacteria called an L-form can spread from kitten to kitten without an open wound and a specific antibiotic is needed. Also depending on what area you are in, you also need to rule out the plague. One thing that may be helpful, is to have a culture taken of the abscess to find out exactly what kind of bacteria is causing the abscess and based on that find the best medication to treat it. It is also an option to seek a second opinion to make sure there isn't something else going on. Good luck with this and good for you for taking these kittens in. I hope they recover soon and that you are able to find them good homes.
