I have pilonidal sinus which I had surgery on 3 years ago. Lately it has re-emerged and is giving me a lot of trouble. it is inflaming and generating pus every month, i will then burst it, drain it, and clean it and it s ok for a month, then it starts accumulating again. I am clean and i use depilatory cream. Should fucidic acid help? or maybe a bactericidal? i m reluctant to do the operation again as I cannot afford such a long recovery period away from work...and with the 50% chance of it reappearing after surgery i don t think it s so worth it. Is there some possible remedy other than surgery? maybe some cream i could apply daily? Thanks!
