hi. i am a 23 year old female who has suffered with pilonidal sinuses for approx 6 years, i have had 5 surgeries to drain them, 1 surgery to remove the sinus all together but they keep reoccurring. i recently had one landed via local anaesthetic, this healed via packing but then tracked and burst its self so then had to have that packed too. it’s been approx 2 weeks since the packing finished on the last one that burst itself and i’m almost certain that i have another one forming. i have tried everything and anything i can to prevent these from occurring but to no avail. any other information on how to prevent these are welcome. this is really begging to take over my life and need to sort this as soon as possible. thank you
