Hello Good Evening,
This is looking like Pilonidal Cyst, also referred to as a pilonidal abscess
, pilonidal sinus
or sacrococcygeal fistula, is a cyst or abscess near or on the natal cleft of the buttocks that often contains hair and skin debris
-One proposed cause of pilonidal cysts is ingrown hair.
-Excessive sitting is thought to predispose people to the condition because they increase pressure on the coccyx region.
-However there are cases where this can occur months after a localized injury
to the area.
-Moisture can fill a stretched hair follicle, which helps create a low-oxygen
environment that promotes the growth of anaerobic bacteria, often found in pilonidal cysts. The presence of bacteria and low oxygen levels hamper wound healing
and exacerbate a forming pilonidal cyst
-In the treatment part there are antibiotic therapy, hot compresses and application of depilatory creams
-In more severe cases, the cyst may need to be lanced or surgically excised (along with pilonidal sinus tracts).
So go to your local surgeon and get diagnosed and treated.
