Caution

Many patients wander here and there in search of any doctor or medicines to cure pilonidal sinus and often waste their time, money and energy by getting trapped in the misleading advertisements, quacks etc. Remember pilonidal sinus is curable by kshar sutra treatment. Most of the patients ignore this disease till they feel large abscess & severe pain. Advance medical surgeries & antibiotics don't assure 100% cure at first surgery. Beware of quacks and false claims, advertisements like those of injection treatment, herbal treatment etc. seen commonly in media. They can harm your health and can lead to complications like anal fistula. Don't try home remedies.

Surgical Treatments

As modern is unable to cure fistula, they always try invent new techniques for it. Here is short information of other techniques available in the world.

Conservative Treatment

If you are not experiencing severe pain and there is no sign of inflammation, you allopathic doctor will usually prescribe a broad-spectrum antibiotic (effective in treating a wide range of different bacteria). If this treatment resolves the problem, your doctor will recommend regular hair removal (shaving) of the site and particular attention to hygiene.

Lancing

Under local anesthesia the abscess is cut opened and hair, blood, pus are removed to clean the cyst.The wound is allowed to heal from the inside out. The wound usually heals within four weeks, and many patients will require no further treatment.

Phenol Injection

Under local anesthesia phenol (a chemical compound used as an antiseptic) is injected into the cyst. This procedure may need to be repeated several times. Eventually, this treatment will cause the lesion to harden and close.

The recurrence rate after phenol injection is high. Therefore, it is becoming less common and is gradually being replaced by surgery.

Surgery

If you have a recurring pilonidal sinus or multiple sinus tracts, your doctor will recommensurgical procedure. Here the infected part will be cut and removed. the surgeon will stitch the wounds closed. After surgery, your doctor will explain how to change the dressings and will recommend shaving the site to prevent hairs from growing into the wound.

There is huge failure rate for this type of surgeries. The procedure & drugs can't assure complete cure as they can remove only infection but not root cause.

Z-plasty Surgery

This technique is used in closure of wound after pilonidal sinus removal. This may reduce chances of recurrence.

Plastic surgery technique

In some cases, where the sinus recurs or is extensive, plastic surgery may be advised to remove the sinus and refashion the nearby skin.
