    Joshua, see a specialist in this area.  Do not go to a general surgeon. 

    Here are a few observations:

    - Antibiotics can help but not cure.  They can clear up a flare up but they do not effect the underlying condition 

    - The sooner you get this treated the better.  Antibiotics or not, Pilonidals get worse.

    - If you address they early the procedure is not that bad and done in the office.  Make sure you have someone around to help you for a few days after.  The location is hard to reach.

    - Take great care to keep area clean.

    There are different surgical treatment methods.  It depends on how bad your pilonidal is.  But I can say from experience; act quickly and aggressively.  Go to a specialist!

    Well Josh I've had a similar problem the last 4 years or so it's now at the stage where I've to get my fourth operation. In my opinion surgery is the best way to keep it away. I have an operation on the 11th of next month. Kinda anyoing taking time off work but it's best in the long term
