What going on?!?!

I have sufferd really badly with piles for a few years which i managed to control and erradicate up until recently. I have recently changed my diet and im sure that this has caused the discomfort (i blame easter for making me greedy again).

Originally when i got piles i was getting a boil at the bottom of my back(just about the top of my *** crack - tail bone-ish area) which was really uncomfortable when sitting or laying down - it was like a double wammy. At first i though nothing of it, but after the long break(over a year) and the return of the piles, came the return of the boil (they should make films out of this).

Thr boil usually lasts around 3 days and then bursts only to reoccur in a few weeks. The consistancy is usually a thick slimey sticky substances which is then followed by a sticky thinner more liquidy substance (once the bulk of the puss has gone).

Obviously as the is a re-occuring thing i want to get it sorted but with my hectic life (work etc) i find it hard to find time to sort out my health issues - plus its not the nicest thing to see a doctor about.

Has anyone ever had this or know what it could be/cures?

Re: What going on?!?!

You may have a pilonidal cyst at the bottom of the tailbone (coccyx) that is infected and filled with pus. Pilonidal cyst looks like a large pimple at bottom of the tailbone just above the crack of the buttocks.

Best to see a doctor for proper treatment. You need an antibiotic to help clear the infection.
