How to stop recurrence of Pilonidal Cyst

Some people go through the treatment for their pilonidal cysts, and it never comes back again. But, about 20 percent of patients experience its recurrence within the first six months after treatment, or as many as 20 years later.

Sometimes, early problems after treatment are not actually a recurrence but rather unhealed sinuses or other cysts that were unnoticed by the doctor. An actual recurrence usually becomes symptomatic between six months and four years after cure. They are normally caused by the same reasons that caused the development of the first cyst. This is possibly rooted from the negligence in proper hygiene, as returning pilonidal cysts mostly develop the same way initial cysts do. To avoid getting another cyst or the initial cyst infection again, here are some suggestions you can follow:

Remove hair frequently from the affected area

Try to keep the area free from hair as much as you can do. It is suggested that you remove any hair from the sacral area if you are prone to pilonidal cysts. This will prevent the risk of getting ingrown hairs or any loose hair from entering the skin again.

Regular checkup of the affected area

Check the affected area for any lumps or soreness on daily basis. Examine the area around the initial pilonidal cyst for any probable lump or redness. If you see any symptom that you’re developing a pilonidal cyst again, immediately, consult your doctor to stop the development.

Consult a doctor

Consult a medical practitioner and get professional advice for the problem. This will also allow you to know other possible reasons that may be causing the recurrence. A doctor may guide you about probable risk and complications and may help you in preventing the chronic inflammation.
