Help with Pilonidal Cyst
An_249536 posted:
I had one a while ago, like my father did at my age. And after a while it just popped and drained. But now (almost 3 months later) theres just a hole where it was, bleeds every once in a while. And it wont heal. I use anti-biotics so it doesn't get infected but it wont heal. Help?

I had one of these too. For 2 or 3 years it grew, popped, and healed, then repeated the process. Had to have minor surgery to remove a root and cyst the size of a golf ball. After that, never gave me any trouble.

Where was your cyst located?
