Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query,
It appears that you are suffering from pilonidal sinus.
It appears in the form of a tract which always drains puss.

You have been prescribed antibiotic which can give you relief for a short period of time.
Finally you may require surgery.

Can you send me a photograph of the lesion.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Waiting for your response.
Thank you
