So I went to the doctor again today to have her check out the pits, cause I was freaking out about them, and she said that she usually waits for 2 or 3 flare ups before she does the cleft lift. I guess I'm ok with this, especially because I'm in school, but she suggested that I try to remove the hair in the area. What is the best way to do this? I will be doing it myself and I have found that shaving is too difficult. Is Nair ok? Does anyone have experience with it even with pits and scar tissue (from previous lancing)? Also, what soap is best to clean the area? Any tips or advice on how you keep your pilonidal from flaring up would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
