Re: how best to shave the area of a pilonidal cyst, plus any other tips?
Hi James, I had this surgery years ago. Do not use hair removal cream until you are certain the wound is fully healed as the incision is very deep and the pain does not bear thinking about if it is not 100 percent closed. It will be difficult to shave afterwards in order to avoid the scar, you may need to get someone to help.
I had loads baths with savlon in it to help avoid infection after surgery.
Best of luck,
