Detailed Answer:
Hello,
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

i am a 33 year old mother of 3 and while I was pregnant with my third I noticed I started getting itchy in my butt area. I thought it might have been caused by all the weight I gained some how and it just seemed like extra sweaty but when it didnt stop after giving birth and losing a few pounds I also noticed that it was accompanied by clear or whitish mucus or puss like leakage. I googled a few things and came across Pilonidal disease that seems to fit but im not sure and I dont know whether to go to my regular dr or my gyne.

i have just been diagnosed with a pilonidal cyst which has burst. I have been on penicillin for almost a week. Although it is healing well, I am not sure how much time to take off work for it to heal properly as my job entails sitting for lengths of time and at the moment I cant do that. How long does it normally take to heal?

my son is thirteen and has been having a discharge from his left nipple which now looks bloody. He is due for surgery for a pilonidal sinus soon. Are these conditions related in any way - maybe by puberty? More importantly, does he need to see our doctore about nipple discharge. Thank you
