Dear friend,
Pilonidal Sinus is a complication due to the infection caused by the irritation of the hair in the cleft.
Surgery is a temporary cure for it. But it can recur.
To avoid the recurrance, always shave the cleft and make sure no hair is there in the cleft. You can use hair removing creams also.
