    Just a weird thought before I went to bed! I've been having these darn things since I was 16, I'm 25 now. Just wondering how much more my body can take. I'm working on number 16 right now![oyo]

    My skin bursts till this very day which shows there is clearly something not right inside. I sometimes even feel a pop with pain I might have an internal cyst? As its happened a few times now it get really hard and then the skin tears open.

    Yes, I had a large cyst (about twice the size of a golf ball) burst full of brown smelly liquid right before they took me back for my second open excision surgery.

    I've only had one burst. All that came out was blood and pus. It broke the skin where my lancing was done in April. Not fun. :p

    2 times, lots of blood, so that is why I finally went to see a surgeon and of course because of the pain.

    The first time my pilonidal ever flared up, it burst. Scared the crap out of me, because I had been having this pain, but never noticed anything until my friend pointed out that I had blood covering the top of my pants. Went to check, and there was blood everywhere. Scared me enough that I had to go to the ER. They cleaned it out, but it wasn't long before it flared again.

    Ditto .... I have had several bursts, and lanced myself a few times over years of dealing with these things.

    Mine burst finally the night before my appointment with the surgeon. I hate doctors and have never been "cut open" by anyone before so I was doing castor oil packs, heating pads, and garlic ALL day that day. It was probably the most disgusting thing I've ever experienced and sealed the deal on marrying my fiancé when he drained it for me. 4 days later now, I swear I can still smell it.

    Go to your doctor. It's better to be safe than sorry when the drainage doesn't stop. There could be complications going on, like an additional infection, or you may need a deeper drain/debridlement.

    When I was cut open for my drainage, apparently my cyst just exploded with out touching it.

    Burst through tracts for very many years. Finally open excision to get to the root of it.

    To make it much easier on you and a lot less painful soak in a hot or really warm Epsom Salt bath or if you can't bath soak a hand towel or wash cloth in Epsom Salt and wring out lightly, put a garbage bag on your bed or chair and sit on the cloth so it's on the infected area, continue to rinse cloth so it's hot, it should drawl out the infection to the surface, if it's not quite ready get a heating pad and again sit on a garbage bag so u don't ruin your heat pad when it burst. Sometimes it takes hours but it's worked every single time for me. I just got to the point I couldn't afford to go to the ER and take all that time off work, it usually healed up pretty good as long as I squeezed out all the liquid. If the area gets hot or you get cellulitis, which is swelling in your extremities and looks and feels like lines running up or down your body you need to go to the ER IMMEDIATELY, you could get blood poisoning or sepsis, You could die. Be careful, take care. Nicole
