Do I have a pilonidal cyst?

I have two tiny holes above my anus and I have 1 or 2 pimples around my butt but I'm not in any pain at all and am confused of the situation

Hi Jet,

FIrst of all, this is the wrong board for your concern - this is the bipolar board - but, while you're here in answer to your question - I have had 2 surgeries to remove a pilonidal cyst, and what you describe doesn't sound like that - HOWEVER, I would just go to your general doctor to find out for sure.
