Hello, My doctor told me about this way my Pilonidal hole was there(Now I had the surgery - 5 days ago). I want to share the way with you guys to help you out, and this way will take some time as it's gonna clean and help getting rid of the Pilonidal Cyst. What you need is: 1) a Platter( Those big and deep ones so you can actually sit in). 2) a Good amount of Salt. 3) a Solid antiseptic cleansing product such as Dettol. What you should do is: 1) Put a good amount of water in a Cooker and make the water a bit hot( Medium Tempreture so you can sit in it ). 2) Get Salt and put it in the Platter 3) Put the water into the Platter 4) Get the Antiseptic cleansing product and put a little amount of it into the water and start mixing all of them together. Now, go sit for 1 or 2 minutes after it start banging(lol. Sorry don't get me wrong). And I mean with Banging is going up and down in the water while making sure the water is really going and touching the Pilonidal Cyst. Do this for like 15 minutes 3 times a day, morning, afternoon and night time. It shall help healing. Best wishes, Your friend, Ehab!
