I've had a pilonidal cyst for 7 or so years. The first time it flared up really badly until it burst. Ever since I've had some occasional discomfort and drainage. A second cyst popped up last year (possibly related) which i had drained by a doctor. That got me thinking more seriously about long term management of the condition. I am thinking about visiting a cleft lift surgeon (last time i researched i think there was one in Philadelphia). Recently I've been having a lot more drainage from the site (almost daily) though there isn't really much discomfort or swelling. The liquid is clear and thin (not bloody or pus-like)...and in the past i could usually tell when my cyst was filling up and would be due to burst whereas now i just basically notice some wetness. Anyone experience this? Is it an indication of anything? Thanks!
