Hi! I'm wondering this because I had two bumps show up and I'm really freaked out about it. I had a cleft lift 4 years ago that I traveled to a reputable Dr on the list for. I see the local Dr in a few days. The thing is I'm reading the ingrown hairs are the CAUSE of pilonidal. But not all info says that. I've been using Hibiclens in the meantime and dabbing peroxide on it. But I'm really worried as due to multiple surgeries I'm not sure there's much to work with back there and I also have tremendous sit pain due to nerve pain by problematic adhesions. Anyways hoping to hear people have had ingrown hairs or boils without it being pilonidal.
