What is a pilonidal sinus?

There is a tiny skin tunnel or hole on the top of the buttocks where they divide that is known as the pilonidal sinus (the aperture). It does not always cause symptoms, and treatment is only necessary after it infects.

Typically, a pilonidal sinus is not discovered until it becomes infected and manifests symptoms. Along with discomfort and swelling brought on by an infection, a pus-filled abscess may develop.

When is the pilonidal sinus free of infection?

Treatment is not required if there are no signs of infection. An "observe and wait" approach will be suggested. To keep the area between your buttocks clean, it's imperative to regularly shower or bathe. Don't shave the affected area unless your doctor advises you to.

Pilonidal Sinus Treatment

A bacterial infection in a hair follicle or a sweat gland at the base of the spine can result in a painful illness called a pilonidal sinus infection. Pilonidal sinus infections can be treated in a variety of ways, such as with antibiotics, surgery, and abscess drainage. Antibiotics, which can be taken orally or administered intravenously, are used to eradicate the germs that are causing the infection. Any abscesses that may be present can be surgically removed, along with any contaminated tissue nearby.

What elements will decide how to treat a pilonidal sinus infection?

  • Patient's symptoms and signs
  • Dimensions of the sinus
  • Whether you have a sinus infection for the first time or it returns

Cysts that develop in the upper portion of the buttock cleft are what distinguish it as a medical problem. Although little is known about the underlying reasons, specialists think that a person's lifestyle, genetics, and cleanliness have an impact on the development of pilonidal sinus.

In some instances, it has been shown that body hairiness, obesity, and long periods of time spent sitting on hard surfaces all enhance the likelihood of developing pilonidal sinus.

Furthermore, as some people may be more prone to developing these cysts than others, heredity may possibly be a factor.Due to their thicker hair, men typically have more pilonidal sinuses. Sitting for extended periods of time can also increase your chance of acquiring a pilonidal sinus.

Minor operation to drain pus from sinus - Incision and drainage
  • Depending on the extent of the abscess, a general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic may be used.
  • Regular (daily) changes of clothing
  • It takes 4 to 6 weeks to recuperate.
Operation to remove sinuses (wound left open) - Extensive removal and open healing
  • Hospital stays under general anaesthesia (you can usually leave the same day).
  • Regular (daily) changes of clothing
  • 6 to 12 weeks of recuperation time have the lowest chance of sinus recurrence.
Operation to remove sinuses (wound closed) - Excision, wound healing, and frequently flattening of the buttocks groove
  • Hospital stays under general anaesthesia (you can usually leave the same day)
  • Compared to extensive excision and open healing, which have a faster recovery time, stitches are removed roughly 10 days following surgery.
  • They have a higher risk of infection (the wound may need to be opened and dressings changed regularly)
Laser Pilonidoplasty (Lpp)
  • Since a wide excision typically requires 6 to 8 weeks for wound healing,
  • Recovery is noticeably quicker.
  • Recurrence rates are quite low.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Prior to being infected, pilonidal sinuses are not a serious medical problem. Infected pilonidal sinuses require medical care.

Swelling and pus leaking may be temporarily relieved, but the symptoms typically recur quickly after that. Most of the time, pilonidal sinus infections do not go away on their own.

On the top of your buttocks, a painful, sensitive, swollen, and red region will develop. You can feel more discomfort when you sit down because pus might start to ooze from the cyst. The pilonidal sinus is covered in hair as well.

In comparison to other procedures, such as those performed to treat fistulas and fissures, the pain associated with pilonidal sinus surgery is frequently less. You won't feel any discomfort during or after the procedure because of the local anaesthetic.
