Thank you for your question.
There is possibility that an infection is developing in the pilonidal sinus. This would make you feel generally unwell and nauseous.
I would suggest you visit your doctor who will be able to examine the area to confirm whether this is the cause of your symptoms and if so prescribe antibiotics.
