What is a Pilonidal Sinus?

In general, a pilonidal sinus is a skin problem. The hair in the area between the buttocks is pushed inward when there is too much pressure and friction in the anal area. This might be brought on by hair that grows around the buttocks or by loose hair that falls out of the buttocks and develops around the cleft and enters the pilonidal sinus.

How does a pilonidal sinus form?

A cyst or abscess can occur when a pilonidal sinus, a tiny tunnel or hole in the skin, becomes blocked with pus, fluid, and debris. In the buttocks’ upper cleft, there is a pilonidal sinus. A pilonidal sinus usually combines dirt and hair along with fluid and debris. If the illness is not treated in a timely manner, it may cause intense pain and the infection may spread to other bodily areas. A pilonidal sinus infection may leak pus, produce infected blood, and smell bad.

    FAQ

    Some of the symptoms to look out for Pilonidal Sinus are:

    • Formation of a small dimple like structure
    • Large painful mass
    • Watery, purulent discharge from the pilonidal sinus
    • Pain while sitting or a little push due to tight clothing.

    In some cases, a pilonidal sinus can heal on its own. But then it can recur and cause other infections also. Hence, it is recommended to undergo laser surgeries that provide permanent relief and it is completely painless.

    You should not drain the cyst or the sinus at your own risk because it may increase the risk of infection in the affected area. If you do not have the access to sterile materials, bacteria can enter the wound which can further cause infection. Hence it is better if you consult with an experienced proctologist and undergo the treatment from a pilonidal specialist only.

    The most common reason for recurrence of a pilonidal sinus is incomplete drainage of the cyst or the sinus tract. If the drainage of the cyst remains incomplete, the pilonidal sinus can recur in the near future. Later recurrence of the pilonidal sinus happens mainly due to tension and trauma in the midline cleft. In some other cases, the sinus reappears due to any infection that builds up and accumulates in the cleft area because the wound does not heal properly.

    No, antibiotics can only provide relief from the symptoms and not the condition at large. Antibiotics do not provide a permanent cure to any anorectal disease including pilonidal sinus. If you experience swelling, redness, and itching in the anal area, using antibiotics can provide you relief from these symptoms. But if you are looking to drain the pilonidal sinus tract and get permanent relief, you should rely on surgical treatment.

    Pilonidal sinus is a comparatively less painful surgery than any other form of anorectal surgery. But there may be instances where the person might feel some pain. In that case, the doctor is likely to prescribe pain medications and ointments for quick relief. Once you get relief from the pain, you can consult with your anorectal surgeon and stop taking the medicines.

    If you go through with the laser procedure for pilonidal sinus treatment, the chances of encountering any problems or complications are negligible. Just make sure you take proper rest and follow all the postoperative instructions provided by your doctor and your recovery will be completely smooth.

    A pilonidal cyst is a cyst filled with fluid or pus that forms near the natal cleft. On the other hand, a pilonidal sinus is a tunnel/channel that forms inside the natal cleft due to recurrent anaerobic infections in the region.

    The risk of developing pilonidal sinus can depend upon factors like the shape of the buttocks and the extent of hair growth. Since these factors are genetic and get travel from one generation to another, it can be said that certain factors causing pilonidal sinus are hereditary.

    In rare and severe cases, pilonidal sinus can increase the risk of a certain type of skin cancer called squamous skin carcinoma. Therefore, it is advisable to seek medical attention for the pilonidal sinus in time.
