Thank you for reading this, I really hope you answer! But, anyways I have a pilonidal cyst, was on 2 antibiotics . (Cephalixin, sulforthroxamine? Spc?) Now, just the cephalexin I'm taking. I Was advised to sit on heating pad/hot bath to have it come out to be drained since it is underneath my skin. It still has not showed its ugly face..no drainage,no blood, no pus, no sinus, no dimple, no hole just a sore cyst when I sit down. I was advised by my doctor to have surgery to get it removed. So my question is did anyone that ONLY had a cyst under the skin have to get it removed and if so what kind of surgery did you have?! OR do you still have the cyst and just live with it....!??! I'm beginning to think I don't want to schedule this surgery.
