Homeopathy Medicine for Pilonidal Cyst
A pilonidal cyst is an abnormal pocket of skin that is almost always found at the top of the cleft of the buttocks, near the tailbone, and typically contains hair and skin debris.
When a pilonidal cyst becomes infected, an abscess often forms as a result, which is frequently very painful. Pilonidal cysts typically develop when hair punctures the skin before becoming embedded.

MYRISTICA SEBIFERA :Effective treatment for a pilonidal cyst, which helps to speed up the suppuration and promote full recovery.
MERC SOL :Useful for pilonidal cysts in the advanced stages when the pus starts to leak from the cyst, causing profuse, acrid, and sticky pus discharge, as well as soreness, pain, and itching in the affected area. Useful when the symptoms worsen at night because warmth tends to make all of these symptoms worse.
CALCAREA SULPH :Useful for controlling pus formation in pilonidal cysts with yellow pus discharge that is thick and lumpy and occasionally bloody.
PHOSPHORUS :Useful for pilonidal cyst when there is a thin, profuse blood discharge from the cyst. Burning in the surrounding skin may also appear. It aids in controlling the bloody discharge and aids in the healing of the pilonidal sinus. It is also extremely helpful in situations where the problem has previously been resolved but has returned with a bloody discharge. It is also helpful for colorless and fetid pus.
