Since I was young I have had an issue with Pilonidal Abscesses, I have had it it drained and packed around 7 times and I have a full removal last year. Almost two days ago it flared up again, Worst of all I am going on holiday in 5 days time! It is really sore and is causing pain when I sit down. Every time I have had antibiotics it doesn't work and I end up back is hospital. Last time I was in hospital on a drip because the infection got in to my blood. Can any of you relate to this? What do I do about my holiday? Do I need to tell the insurance company? Any help will be amazing!
