Thumbs down Pilonidal Cyst - Wont stop bleeding

Hey everyone - new to these forums so hello.

I got a question - recently I've noticed I have gotten a Pilonidal Cyst on my tailbone. I went to the doctors and got it checked. It's not big, it doesn't hurt it just bleeds A LOT. It bleeds to the point where I could easily go through 3+ boxers a day. It's effecting my school because it will bleed while in class and its disgusting sitting in the blood/puss that comes out. It's like a mixture between blood and puss and smells really bad. How can I make it stop bleeding? Sometimes It will clot up the top hole but it will the leak outta the bottom one (there are 2 one on it and one further down). But then when I take a shower it starts bleeding again. I would patch it up but its so difficult to patch that area up because its in a awkward position. Should it be bleeding this much or should I go to the doctor again?

Re: Pilonidal Cyst - Wont stop bleeding

First of all..Welcome! Didn't your Dr. recommend it being surgically removed? If it is draining blood and puss it is infected. The surgerical procedure is simple and can be done by either your Dr. or a surgeon. Usually they will drain it and if needed put some stitches in it and give you an antibiotic. Don't let this thing keep going as it may get worse. Call your Dr.

Good luck and keep us posted...JJ...
