Recurrent Pilonidal Cyst after Surgery

Good day.

I am rather new to the idea of homeopathy, but am willing to try anything to solve my problem after having a pilonidal cyst return after a surgery.

My pilonidal cyst first flared up when I was 22, in November 2008. The area was very red and swollen, and when it got too painful, I went to the hospital where they lanced it and diagnosed me. It flared up again within a few weeks, and had to be lanced again. That was when we scheduled surgery for late January 2009. The surgeon said that he found a sinus while in the surgery room, and was able to remove 'everything.'

The wound seemed to heal well, and it seemed to be gone. Months later, though, I noticed a red bump to the side of the surgery scar, like a pimple. With time, it grew into a boil-like appearance. I showed my doctor, and he cut it to find a little pus, but that was all. He also noted that the bottom of my surgery wound hadn't seemed to fully heal, as there was a hole at the bottom.

Whenever the 'boil' area healed over, it would either last very shortly before bursting with pus again, or pus and blood would come out of the hole at the bottom of the wound. The surgeon has since treated me with silver nitrate twice. It finally closed the wound up for good it seemed, but pus must have still been building underneath, because the area took on the same appearance as my first cyst and hurt just as bad.

I made an appointment to have it lanced, but it came to the surface and burst on its own before I had the chance. It is constantly leaking yellow fluid and a little blood now; I must wear gauze over it at all times. The hole in the bottom of the surgery scar no longer seems to be attached - nothing has come out of it since the second silver nitrate treatment.

What should I do?

Thank you for your help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take silicea 6c thrice a day for one week. After that take three doses of silicea 200c at a gap of 4 hours on a single day. Silicea 200c should be taken only for one day.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Please report after 10 days.

Thank you! I will try this and follow the homeo restrictions and be back in 10 days.

Quick question after reading a few other replies to Pilonidal posts:

How many tablets would make up a 'dose' of Silicea 6c and how many would make a 'dose' of Silicea 200c? I want to make sure that I do this right. :)
Chanon last decade
one dose means 4 pills. please don't touch pills by hand. Please use cap of container to take pills. Keep pills under tongue until dissolved.

The thread did'nt move up after my earlier post. So moving it up.
kadwa last decade
Thank you for the clarification. As I said, I am new to homeopathy, so all of this information is very important to me.

I had to order the Silicea because I could't find it locally. It should be here within 2 days; I will start then.
Chanon last decade
I chose to wait until starting this treatment because, after posting my question and waiting for the Silicea to be shipped to me, my wound seemed to close and be okay. However, it recently burst and began doing the same thing as before, so I am currently on Day 6 of Silicea 6c thrice a day, and tomorrow will be the last day before I take Silicea 200c for one day.

I'm experiencing a small amount of blood, pus, and yellow fluid coming out of the wound...is this normal? Should I continue treatment as you specified? Also, I will run out of Silicea 6c after tomorrow; will I likely need to order more?

Thank you for your help.

You need to push out all the pus and dirty blood (blood interlaced with pus).

Myristica 200 will do it faster.

Ok, should I continue this treatment then, or discontinue and order Myristica? How much, how often, and how long would I need to take it?
Chanon last decade
Take Myristica 200

three doses in gap of 1/2 hour on day one

on day seven, repeat the same.

After 10 days post feed back here.
