I had a pilonidal cyst bust around this past Halloween without any pain at all. It was kind of a shock to see blood on the back of the toilet seat. Then after Thanksgiving and into the New Year it was oozing green pus off and on so I had it lanced on January 4th and was also given antibiotics. I went back on the 28th because it had busted again and was given a stronger antibiotic ( Clindamycin to be exact) . I finished it and then had a smaller flare up that drained over the weekend. I've never been so uncomfortable and depressed in my life and was wondering if I need more time to heal. Just wondering if I thought I should be a lot better sooner than I was thinking. It's really tiny but terrible.
