As you have been suffering with this since long time, the treatment usually for this would be steroidal preparations.
As this is the tail bone the blood supply to it is limited and healing takes a long time.
Along with steroidal course you need to take analgesics and to avoid any pressure over the tail bone.
You can use round tube like cushion to avoid any pressure over the tail bone along with sitz bath where you can sit a tub of warm water with salt.
Avoid prolonged sitting till the pain completely is resolved.
If you have too much trouble and it is not able to heal by medical management then you can go for surgical removal of the tail bone.
known as coccygectomy
How much of ibuprofen and frequncy
you can Ibuprofen three times a day after food. This is only analgesic which will reduce your pain.
For how many days
You can take it till your trip outside XXXXXXX is done not more than 5 days.
Once back you need to see an orthopedician again for further managment.
Do you have anymore queries for me to help you with?
