Pilonidal sinus is a small hole in the skin found in the crease of the buttocks near the tailbone. It usually contains hair, dirt and other skin debris which may cause infection and extreme pain if they get trapped under your skin. Once it gets infected, it causes a cyst or abscess to be formed.
What are the symptoms of pilonidal sinus?
When you notice a small lump that looks like a pimple in your lower backbone, do not take it for granted and have it checked immediately. Once it gets infected, you may experience skin reddening, swelling, pain that worsens when sitting, and oozing foul-smelling pus or blood from the skin opening.
