Jenelle Evans has had a tough couple of years and she recently opened up about another issue she’s dealing with – this time involving her six-year-old son’s health.
In an Instagram post, the mom-of-three revealed that her son Kaiser has an “infected abscess in his groin.” The infection is affecting his lymph nodes, she shared.

“He’s been on multiple medications and hopefully this next antibiotic will work,” the worried mom wrote in the caption.
Fans responded with many supportive messages for the former Teen Mom, though some wondered how her son got the infection. In response to commenters asking those types of questions, Janelle replied that Kaiser had “been to the doctor for a month now.”
“This is the first time I’m mentioning it to all of you…but this problem has been watched for a while now,” she continued.
Jenelle recently resolved her custody battle with Kaiser’s dad, her ex Nathan Griffith, which had been going on for months. Jenelle will have primary custody of Kaiser and Nathan will have his son every other weekend.
The couple will also alternate having Kaiser for Thanksgiving and split Christmas.
In addition to Kaiser, Jenelle also has an 11-year-old son Jace with ex Andrew Lewis and three-year-old daughter Ensley with husband David Eason.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
