Pilonidal sinusPLEASE HELP.
I have had 3 operations to remove a pus filled lump and infected skin from my armpit. I am now waiting for another operation but this time it is for pilonidal sinus, after the pain and discomfort from the last operations I really want alternative treatment. The lumps are in a cluster of about 3/4 and weep, bleed and are constantly sore. I have been given one antibiotic after the other and now nothing works at all, (they only eased the lumps at best anyway). I asked my doctor for a swab of the infection in the lumps, it came back as proteus. I understand this may be one of the methicillin resistant infections but I am not entirely sure as my doctor will not give any information. What can I take for proteus and what can I take for pilonidal sinus? I always keep the wound clean and use a different towel every time I clean it, I've tried echinacea, astragalus, allicin and manuka honey but nothing has worked. In fact, I have now started to have pus filled or sore lumps in different places. A pus filled lump appeared on my inner thigh and I have sore lumps appear in other personal places. I don't understand where the infection and lumps have come from, I really need some help.
