Canít handle the pain of your pilonidal cyst any longer? Surgery hurts even more, so much that the first few days of recovery youíll have trouble moving due to pain. Maybe you already undergone 1, 2 or even 6 and this only worsened your situation. You consulted the doctor but he or she didnít offer you a surgical drainage so you are thinking on doing it yourself at home. Donít take it lightly, for it can result counterproductive. To prevent this, I warn you about troublesome methods and explain you simple, painless ones.
Everyone Does The Same Thing
You are probably tempted to squeeze your pilonidal cyst in the same way than youíd pop an acne pimple. The difference is that in contrast to this, a pilonidal cyst does not mature into a white-head, complicating the process. It may end up aggravating irritation as well as inflammation and consequently pain.
It is noteworthy that squeezing rarely gets rid of all the pus so it reproduces again. Is it worth all the hassle and pain? Moreover, youíd have to repeat the process again further on.
Hold On Right There
Never cut open your pilonidal cyst. You run the risk of slicing an unaffected area causing the infection to spread or develop there. This prevents healing by scar. In case the cut is deep, you canít have it sewn up.
Nor suction your pilonidal cyst with a syringe. This will not only collect pus but blood, with which a limit exists unless you want to suffer serious consequences, as well as fat, which would affect the form of the natal cleft. You can drag the infection deeper into your body with the needle.
Look At All That Pus
The following methods are effective on a big pilonidal cyst and stop doing so once they brought certain improvement. It is worth to try them even if your pilonidal cyst doesnít measure that much since itís the only way to know if they will work. No matter if these methods to drain it fail 2 or 3 times, they could work in the next few ones.
Prepare the shower. Start bathing yourself. When youíre about to finish, let the water heat considerably without reaching the point where it burns you. Let it fall over your pilonidal cyst. This will itch intensely for a moment, burst open and leak pus.
Another way to drain a pilonidal cyst at home is by taking Aloe Vera. This contains active components like Aloin and Emodin, 2 anthraquinones that possesses analgesic, antiviral and antibacterial properties, as well as salicylic acid, which possesses the last and anti-inflammatory properties. The gel found inside the leaves carries a strong effect so you can only take a little of it. Otherwise, youíll develop diarrhea since the anthraquinones also endow the plant with laxative properties.
Watch out with the methods to drain a pilonidal cyst at home that worsen your discomfort or harm you. Per se the condition is complicated enough as to risk yourself to acquire other health problems. As long as you follow the precautions of hot water and Aloe Vera, theyíre safe. Use them often.
