Thanks for query on HCM.
It requires proper management.
Clean it with antiseptic liquid and apply antibiotic cream like fusidic acid cream.
Do it regularly , it will heal within 5 to 7 days.
Take care for local hygiene.
Recurrent episodes require local examination by surgeon for proper diagnosis and management.
Pilonidal sinus requires surgical removal.
keep in touch with your doctor.
