I have a friend that has a lump of somekind in here panty line. Right where your underwear seam hits. Has anyone heard of this or had this and is it a "pilonidal"? I thought pilonidal cysts were just at the natal cleft....she's going to a doctor today. It's been painful and has switched from undies to boxers to keep pressure of it. It popped a couple weeks ago and went down in size; blood and pus; but last night it started oozing alittle clear liquid and is very sore. It looks like a tiny hole for the opening. Just looking for some advice on how to help her. I'm guessing if it's not labeled as a pilonidal cyst it's just an ordinary cyst. She's had it for a year only recently has it gotten more painful. Felt like a hard pea size bump until it popped and she drained it a couple weeks ago, now it's flatter. Any advice???
