Pilonidal Cyst - Causes, Symptoms & Treatment | Everyday Health
A pilonidal cyst is a pocket that forms around a hair follicle in the crease between the buttocks. The area may look like a small pit or pore in the skin that contains a dark spot or hair. Sometimes the cyst can become infected and this is called a pilonidal abscess. An infected pilonidal cyst or abscess requires surgical drainage. It will not heal with antibiotic medicines.
