Natural remedies to treat the symptoms of the pilonidal cyst at home

The following are some natural remedies that can help in treating the symptoms of the pilonidal cyst at home:

  • Castor oil: Applying castor oil can help in getting some temporary relief from the pain and inflammation caused by pilonidal cysts. Castor oil also helps in boosting the healing of wounds.
  • Aloe vera: For ages, aloe vera has been used as one of the most effective natural remedies for treating skin problems. Applying aloe vera can help in easing the pain and discomfort and can enhance the process of healing.
  • Neem: This is one of the most commonly used remedies for treating skin problems. The antioxidants in neem are beneficial for reducing the production of melanin in the skin.
  • Warm compress: Applying a warm compress for 2 to 3 times a day can help in providing some relief from the pain and discomfort. It helps in discharging the pus in the pilonidal cyst, fostering the healing process.
  • Honey: Due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, honey works wonders in reducing the symptoms of pilonidal cyst.
  • Turmeric: Like honey, turmeric also has anti-inflammatory properties that can significantly help and boost the process of healing.

You can try all of the above natural remedies to treat the symptoms of pilonidal sinus at home. However, it should be kept in mind that these remedies only help in treating the symptoms and can provide some temporary relief from the pain and discomfort.

Different surgical treatments for pilonidal sinus

Here are the different surgical treatments for pilonidal sinus treatment:

  • Laser pilonidal sinus treatment- Laser surgery for pilonidal sinus is the most effective treatment for pilonidal sinus. During the procedure, the proctologist uses a high-intensity laser beam to close off the sinus tract. The doctor removes the entire pit of the pilonidal sinus so that the infection does not recur. It is an easier and higher precision procedure to perform as compared to the earlier mentioned types of open surgery. The treatment procedure requires only one day of dressing as there are no wounds left behind to heal. The laser energy also promotes the faster healing of the site of the surgery. Thus, it takes a very short time to completely recover from laser surgery for the pilonidal sinus.
  • Incision and drainage- Incision and drainage is an open surgical procedure recommended mostly when the cyst becomes infected. It is performed with local anesthesia to make the affected area numb. The surgeon makes an incision in the cyst to drain the infectious fluid and pus. The doctor packs the hole with gauze and leaves it open to heal. It can take up to 4-6 weeks to heal the cyst completely.
  • Pilonidal cystectomy- Pilonidal cystectomy is the surgical removal of the entire pilonidal cyst. The treatment is performed after administering general/regional anesthesia. The surgeon makes a cut to remove the affected skin along with underlying hair follicles, tissues, and dead cells. If required, the doctor packs the area with surgical gauze. In cases where the infection is severe, the doctor places a tube to drain the fluid from the cyst. The tube is removed when the entire fluid is drained from the cyst.

Are there any risks and complications involved during pilonidal sinus surgery?

If performed under the guidance and supervision of a trained proctologist, surgical treatment for pilonidal sinus will not cause any risks or complications. But, like any other surgery, there might be some complications, although not severe. Some of them are:

  • Trauma and bleeding to the site – If the surgery is not performed efficiently, there can be a chance of the anal tissues getting injured. Trauma and injury to the anal tissues can even lead to bleeding. If the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon, the chances of any injury can be cut down drastically.
  • Infection – Like any other surgery, infection is a common side effect/ complication in case of pilonidal sinus surgery too. Infection can lead to nausea and vomiting in the person. Infection, however, is not a very serious problem and can be treated with medicines. The chances of infection in case of open surgery is much higher than in laser surgery.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma – A type of skin cancer that occurs due to uncontrolled growth of the squamous cells. The condition is not very common but not unheard of. To prevent such complications, it is extremely important that the surgery is performed by an experienced and trained surgeon.
