Ghaziabad's Advanced Treatment For Pilonidal Sinus

You should seek treatment if you suffer from a pilonidal sinus. Pilonidal sinuses are caused by a sac of pus near the base of the skull. The sac may become filled with fluid, which can cause pressure to build up in the skull. This pressure can eventually result in headaches, dizziness, and seizures. If you experience any of these symptoms, then you should contact your doctor. Depending on your condition, your doctor can recommend the best treatment option.

Symptoms of Pilonidal Sinus

There are several types of pilonidal sinuses, most commonly located between the buttocks (the natal cleft), but they may also occur in other areas, such as the armpits, groin or navel. Symptoms include:

  • pain in the affected area
  • swelling
  • redness
  • discharge of pus or blood from the sinus
  • a foul-smelling odour
  • fever, chills and fatigue.​

Pilonidal Sinus Treatment Options

In order to relieve your symptoms, your doctor may recommend one of the following outpatient treatments:

  • A surgeon will make an incision in the skin and remove the infected tissue. The wound will then be stitched or stapled closed. Surgical excision is the most common treatment for pilonidal sinus.
  • Ablation with laser: This procedure destroys infected tissue with lasers.
  • A cryotherapy treatment destroys infected tissue with freezing temperatures.
  • Electrical currents are used to destroy infected tissues during electrocautery.
