The pilonidal cyst appears due to an excessive and continuous pressure on the sacrococcygeal area. It is formed along the tailbone, near the left of the buttocks and above the anus, and looks like a sac and can make worse an already existing cyst. It consists of waste matter of the skin and hair. The ingrown hair irritates the skin and causes inflammation and creation of a carbuncle or cyst.
In most cases, these cysts are more common in men than in women, and most often, they occur between the ages of 16-25 years.
The main symptoms of the pilonidal cysts are pain in the lower spine, fever, redness and tenderness over the lower spine and drainage of pus from the opening in the skin.
Fortunately, instead of having a surgery or other medical help, you can solve this condition at home, with the help of some natural remedies.
