How can I get rid of pilonidal cyst problem during pregnancy ?

Ok, I am 19 and I have a pilonidal cyst on my tail bone . I had one when I was 16, a week ago and now....I m 19 weeks pregnant and can only get it drained but the local anesthetic doesn t numb the area. I get it to drain from hot compresses but keeps coming back. Is there anyway I can get rid of it for good while I m pregnant?

Thanks for query,
As you are pregnant and anesthesia is the problem,
If there is no problem wait till delivery,
if it is infected then go for antibiotic course.
There is option for surgery is to give injection Phenol.
Discuss about this to your surgeon and take his advice.
Ok and bye.
