Pilonidal Cyst :(

As embarrassing as this topic is, are any of you suffering from this evil little condition since working out. I have read on Google these usually appear when people exercise. Not always. This is the third time in 18 years I suffer from one. I never even knew what it was until a few days ago ,when I thought I had hurt my tailbone exercing. And come to find out it's this horrid thing. I am hoping because I caught it early and went straight to the doctor (believe me you dont want this thing having any chance of growing) I was prescribed antibiotics. I am praying with all that is good that it will disappear with the antibiotics If not im in for s hell of a time. Have any of you dealt with one and treated it early? Or if not , anything you did to get relief early on. I heard ,Castor oil, vinegar,and baking soda. I was doing soo good too,and now I'm worried this thing is going to set me back from working out :(

Any luck with PRID(drawing salve)??

I had my first pilonidol cyst flare up about 10 years ago. Since then I've had this bugger lanced and drained about times. The last time I had it lanced and drained, the doc cut very deep and it took a good 2 months for the incision to heal, however I went almost 2 years with no flare ups! Well, a few days ago I had that all too familiar ache at the top of my crack and within the past 3 days it was definitely at that point of going to the doc to have it lanced and drained. I read about using a drawing salve,( ichtammol as the main ingredient) and decided it was worth a shot before going to the doc. When I woke up this morning the area was very swollen, as usual, and sitting, walking, laying hurt like a b. I soaked in the tub for about 20 min (Epsom salts), cleaned the area, dried it very well and then applied PRID drawing salve to a gauze bandage and covered the cyst. I took a 3 hour nap due to a bad nights sleep the night before, when I woke up my pain and swelling went from an 8 to a 3. I've researched this salve and have heard success stories. I'm curious to know if anyone else has ever had any luck with this product. Mind you in the past ten years my cyst only ever drained 1 time on it's own, so I'm skeptical about it draining but the salve has to be doing something because my cyst has never been this bad and felt better without having it lanced before. The product name I'm using is PRID. Thanks much!

I have a painful swelling at my tailbone that I think is a pilonidal cyst. I'm traveling and can't see my doctor until next week. What should I do?


So I've got a painful red lump at the top left of my ass crack, maybe about the size of a peach pit. Doing some web research, I'm thinking it's a pilonidal cyst (human bodies are gross, btw).

It's uncomfortable, but not intensely painful. Which is a good thing, since I'm miles from home on serious business and won't get to see my doc until sometime next week. I can live with it until thenor can/should I? YANMD, but

1) Am I endangering my health or making it worse by waiting a few days? Should I run out and find the nearest emergency room ASAP? I don't want to end up with some bad consequence that could have been avoided if I'd only acted sooner.

2) As long as I'm not slumped on my tailbone, I'm OK to function for business all day. But when I get back to the hotel, should I be caring for this byicing it? Hot towels? Eye of newt?

Ive had this issue on and off since my mid 20s . Idk what started it to begin with but the doc says this happens to people born with a sacral dimple. Usually hairs get clogged and thats how this gets inflamed. They say keep the area free of hair- sure lol!! Anytime i wax, shave or use hair remover creams its an instant flare up! Also use of steroids - like for asthma or other medical issues will blow this thing up too! Ive had this thing lanced over 8 times already to the point where the scar tissue is so thick theyre running out of places to cut . I absolutely refuse to have the major surgury done to remove the sac. Too many horror stories seriously and they tell you its no guarantee it wont come back. After the 3rd or 4th time i had it lanced it became routine to me. Didnt panic on the table didnt hurt after was just instant relief!!! However you need to be really careful. I contracted MRSA from one of these incisions in a hospital! Make sure they send the blood and pus to a lab asap after draining. What i didnt know is that MRSA lives in you forever after contracting it. Any draining should be kept clean and covered . MRSA can be passed on to others . Im dealing with a smaller pilonidal cyst now. Ive been applying heat compresses for 2 days and applying PRID - black drawing salve- today day three it became really sensitive . I went to touch it and it burst out of a small cavity inside the dimple- now mind you the cyst was on top of the tailbone so that shows you how deep it is under the skin. Yellow thick pus burst out with about 5 short hairs and then blood lots of blood. Its still sore and still draining slowly. Drawing salve is your best bet if its small.

I have had an interesting experience with a PC. I'm a 35 year old guy and I've had 2 surgeries, multiple treatments spanning from to present date.

In while I was attending university the PC was discovered and I had my first surgery in December. They dug a trench right above my butt and inserted the sponge and dressing. I had a pump about the size of a large textbook on my side. It would irritate/pull at the wound and collect puss. I wore the pump for about 6 weeks and then eventually had dressings changed 3x per week. It was all done and healed up by April

I was fine until I was traveling in Korea and draining started again. This was in This time I had surgery with local anesthesia. They opened me up, scooped out the infection and then closed me up. The incision was about 6 inches long. It took months to heal. I was able to stand up no problem but when I wasn't walking I was lying down on my stomach. Once this healed up I was fine. This procedure cost me about $ at a hospital where they pay about 50% of the costs. Some kind of special arrangement. It's a big hospital though, well known throughout Asia - Asan Hospital. So I was fine

Until

Last spring () I was traveling in Mexico and upon returning home had this horrible smell. Most of the summer of was spent just putting gauze on the re-opening of the surgery that I had done. Fall and now Winter I've been seeing a surgeon who apparently specializes in this region of the body. We were applying silver nitrate on the wound every weeks and of course putting gauze and bandages, changing x per day. I've been showing x per day as well. The wound did almost close up completely. Someone in the thread mentioned that theirs was the size of a cotton swap head, that's just what mine was about a month ago and then it got bigger again and we're running out of ideas.

Our current experiment is powdered silver nitrate. It's a challenge to find a compounding pharmacy that can order and mix silver nitrate and calcium phosphate. I had to go to a bunch of different pharmacies before I could find one who can do it.

A few things about my condition:

- The current situation is that the incision re-opened at the bottom about 1" away from the rectum.
- It's a really sensitive area of the body and the skin is thin.
- Fresh air, sun and dryness does not get into this part of the body very easily making it difficult to heal.

Getting that last little bit closed is quite the challenge. I think an overly sedentary contributed to the re-occurence. Now that I think about it, I was working in an office and walking a lot pre but in January I started working from home the ultimate death sentence for sedentary workers, you might say.

10 yr old thread, so OP's son should be 26 by now & last of OP's post below was in , so still a while ago. How's he doing now?

I had one in my early 20s. As I thought back then, I think it's because when I was in 6th grade one day at school at recess, a classmate was running fast & smashed right into me & knocked me down to the ground where I landed on my tailbone. It hurt, but I never had complications ever until I developed that cysts in my early 20s.

It was taken care of properly & I had a home care nurse come over to pack it, etc. & it healed fine in a timely manner (forget how long it took) & thank GOD I never had any more problems since!

Sorry your son has had a lot of complications!

My daughter is 17 and has been dealing with a pilonidal sinus for about 2 years. She has had 3 surgeries which left her with a hole bigger than my first in her lower back and then a wound vac for about a year. Just recently we got it small enough to try other treatments like hydraphara blue and alginent but those only made it worse. I brought medihoney off Amazon and that healed it totally and fairly fast so I thought it was all over. 3 days without the honey and the sinus came back. These things are relentless!! So back to the medihoney til it heals again and then I'm getting her laser hair removal and I hope this keeps it from coming back. Thank you all for your stories, I hope we can all help each other by sharing stories.

Hi everyone
I&#;ve just stumbled upon this forum and could use some advice. When I was in HS (age 16) I had my first run in with my pilonidal cyst. I figured out what it was via Dr Google (search engines can be helpful with a medical diagnosissometimes lol). A bump of on the inside of my right butt cheek that was super painful to the touch. As soon as I popped the cyst (I wasn&#;t aware I shouldn&#;t have done that; I thought it was just an ingrown hair), I was in such immense pain, which lasted for a few weeks. There was a ton of drainage and pus and just grossnessit would soak through my pants and not be very nice smelling. I decided to go to the Dr who confirmed it was a pilonidal cyst and told me that it was pretty infected (at this point I had multiple sinuses). She recommended surgery immediately, but there was only a 50% chance of success and I wasn&#;t ready to take those odds. I was given antibiotics and cleaning wipes for the area and the horrid pain lasted a few more weeks before it eventually subsided.
It would get sore whenever I&#;d get my period (as I was told hormones could affect it). But I never had a true flare upuntil now. I&#;m currently 25, and have noticed an increase in pain. I haven&#;t seen an actual cyst, and only a little bit of leakage from the sinuses, but it&#;s definitely painful to sit on. I just got a wax in that area today to try to get rid of the hair and have signed up for waxes every three weeks from now. Hoping that will help somewhat, or keep it from getting inflamed/infected.
I&#;ve gotten a coccyx cushion for my 8hr desk job, taken epsom baths, clean it multiple times a day with alcohol wipes. I&#;m debating going to a specialist or my primary care physicianbut idk if surgery is worth it. My dad got the surgery done last year and it seemed to have helped, but so many people have issues with it reoccurring.
Is the surgery worth it?? At this point I&#;m not sure what options I have left. I&#;d love to just wait it out, but not sure I can handle the pain getting worse.
I don&#;t think it&#;ll go away on its own, and I certainly don&#;t want to have to be in that much pain from an infection again.
Suggestions?

I didn't realize this thread had been resurrected. I'm happy to report that today, at yes, 26 yrs old, my son appears to be over his battle with the pilonodal cyst. It never did completely close, but he hasn't been bothered by an infection or drainage in several years.
