I'll start off with a lil background first. I had my first ever pilonidal cyst drained around June last year and I've been left with an open wound that's been healing ever since. I recently got discharged from my clinic and instructed to look after it myself. I had been doing everything normally but I ran out of adhesive dressings, I decided to leave my wound uncovered until I could get some more as the dressings irritated my skin a lot to the point of bleeding and scabbing even with medibarrier spray and I wanted to let my skin heal a bit before I got some more dressings. In that time I washed the wound with a salt bath every other day and then cleaned it normally in the days between baths but it's started bleeding a lil more than usual and today I noticed this red thing coming out of it? (Not sure if image will upload as I'm on mobile but if not, here's a link: http://imgur.com/49kda5K) There was no pain or anything, just more blood than usual and it's not attached to the skin, it can be moved around it's just attached to the wound entrance and I didn't fancy trying to see if I could pull it out. It just looks like some congealed blood to me, maybe a blood clot but I'm inexperienced with these things so I wanted to get a second opinion on whether or not this was something serious. I'll be ordering some more dressings tomorrow and I'll begin dressing it again.
