Do the sores associated with cyclic neutropenia tend to break out in a particular location?

Signs and symptoms of cyclic neutropenia can vary between affected individuals. However, sores associated with cyclic neutropenia often develop in the mouth, around the anus (particularly in infants and young children), and on the skin. With neutropenia skin infections are often bacterial, such as folliculitis, abscess, impetigo, or boils.[1] Skin infection may occur anywhere. Other common signs and symptoms associated with cyclic neutropenia include fever, sore throat (pharyngitis), sinus and respiratory infection, and stomach pain.[2][3603] You should keep your doctor informed regarding the signs and symptoms you are experiencing.
