Get the most advanced, effective, and painless permanent laser-assisted treatment for pilonidal sinus in a daycare procedure
A Pilonidal sinus is a small tunnel or hole in the skin at the top of the buttocks that gets filled with fluid, debris, or hairs causing the formation of a cyst or abscess. When infected, a pilonidal sinus may ooze pus or infected blood and cause pain.
When there is too much friction and pressure in the lower back area, the hair between the buttocks gets pushed inward. This may either be caused by the hairs growing around the buttocks or due to the loose hair sheds from the buttocks area that gathers around the cleft and gets into the pilonidal sinus.
If left untreated it can lead to abscesses that can get painful and swollen. Purulent discharge along with blood is also very likely to ooze out from the sinus.
If the pilonidal sinus is left untreated for a long time, the person has a higher risk of developing multiple sinus tracts. Having multiple sinus tracts can lead to the unbearable pain of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma.
If left untreated, pilonidal sinus can also lead to a fistula, a condition known as a pilonidal fistula -in - ano.
