Pilonidal cyst, recurring condition, drainage on pressing, internal rupture. Cause of concern?

I have a pilonidal cyst which was lanced about 4 years ago and recently came back about 6 months ago. I usually relieve the pain by pushing on it which causes the cyst to drain. Last night I pushed on it as normal and I felt it rupture internally with no discharge . Is this a cause for concern? I have moderate pain in the area. Thanks.

Hello ,
Thanks for your query . Pilonidal cyst can cause recurrent infection if not drained properly . The method you are doing - pushing the cyst to drain is not the right one.It will result in formation of sinus with discharge. I would suggest you to start antibiotics to resolve the infection for a week and get the pilonidal cyst drained properly by the surgeon .Improper drainage could be the cause of your pain as there may still be some remnant discharge.Hope this helps.
Thank you.
