Pilonidal Cyst

I have suffered for about 15 years from a pilonidal cyst. I am 28 years old, in otherwise good health.
For about four years, it drained on and off from one location and has not bothered me very much, aside from having to wear a bandage. Now, another huge cyst has appeared slightly above and the left of my original cyst. It was opened out of a small, deep hole and is now bleeding quite a bit after discharging a lot of watery pus.
I have heard about myristica and Silicea, followed by Calcarea Sulp but I am really looking for an end to this horrible disease once and for all. I have never tried homeopathic remedies and do not want to undergo surgery.
My husband and I are planning to have a family soon, and I also want to know if these cures are safe while trying to conceive and/or while pregnant. I must get rid of this cyst, and that is primary concern for now. Please, please - any help is SO appreciated.

9. Major complaint is the pilonidal cyst I have lived with for many years, almost 15 years. Started low in the cleft to the left side. That opened and drained several years ago and continues to occasionally drain. Now, another large swelling has appeared higher and to the left of the original pilonidal. This too has opened into a deep round hole. It is draining blood now after draining watery pus for a few days.

18. The polidinal affects my everyday life, I'm embarrassed I may be bleeding through my pants at work. I feel disgusting and ugly because of the wound at times. I often do not feel like having intercourse because of the pain and discomfort. The cold sore makes me extremely embarrassed.

26. My mother is of Italian background, Sicilian specifically. My father is a mix of Calabrese and probably German or Irish. He also suffered from a pilonidal cyst and had surgery as a teenager. My younger brother (age 20) suffers from this as well. He has had in lanced (I have not) but still occasionally suffers.
27. I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts (theatre) and some credits towards an MS in Education.
28. I am an Admission Counselor at a college
29. I love almost all food and love to cook. Hate Cilantro.
30. I'm not really aware of foods that aggravate the cyst.
31. Unfortunately I am most irritable with the people I love the most, my husband and mother. I struggle to be less uptight about small problems. I try very hard to do right by my family and do good for everyone. I do have family stress related to money - just got married and left my parent's home. They are struggling with money severly and I feel unable to help them. I love being in front of people and public speaking. I was a theatre major. I love to cook. I feel very empathetic towards people and their plights, sometimes it is harder for me to show that with the people I love than with strangers.
32. Sometimes I can be easily aggravated by small things.
My cyst seems to be aggravated related to my menstrual cycle.
33. I do not have photos.
34. mid cleft of buttocks, to the left side
35. mid-Left side on buttocks
36. Now it is bleeding very red blood. Before that, yellowish watery pus leaked for days.
37. My last period started on April 11, 2012 and ended on April 14, 2012. I recently stopped taking the birth control pill (Levora) after approx. 5 years of taking it. My menstrual cycle is now much longer than the previous 28 days, usually 33-35 days long. I am bleeding more heavily than I did on the pill.
38. I am not pregnant, but my husband and I are having unprotected sex in the hopes of becoming pregnant soon.

I thank you VERY MUCH for any help you can provide me!

May God Bless You, too Nawaz.

I will order the remedies you suggest. How shall I take them and in what quantity? Or will you stay with my case and advise as I go?
Also, are they safe when trying to conceive a child?
MRyerson last decade
Another question, What strength of Berberis Vulgaris do I purchase? I do not see 'Q' as an option.
MRyerson last decade
I'm so sorry to be bothersome. I have found the 'Q' strength by switching to liquid format.
For the other remedies, do I take pellets, tablets, or liquid? I'd like to order them today to get started.
Many, many thanks.
MRyerson last decade
I have ordered the following:

Boiron Calcarea Sulphurica 200C 75 pellets
BOIRON USA - Calendula Officinalis 200ck
Boiron Hypericum Perforatum 200C 75 pellets
Berberis Vulgaris Mother Tincture 1oz liquid by Boiron

Very good. I will do so. Thank you very, very much again!
MRyerson last decade
is the water supposed to be hot? the pellets are not dissolving in room temp water.
MRyerson last decade
No, no hot water. Use a spoon for dissolving, it usually takes 3-4 minutes.
nawazkhan last decade
I let it sit for a while and it finally dissolved. Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Nawaz,
I have been taking your remedies as suggested since yesterday.
It is very soon, so no change as of yet. But just keeping you updated.
Can you give me a list of any other remedies I may have to order for my future treatment?
Also, when I get my period, should I discontinue the berberis? I'm not due to get it for a few weeks.
MRyerson last decade
I am also reading that berberis is not good for pregnancy. If I was to conceive and not become aware until I miss my period, will this be dangerous?
MRyerson last decade
Having some uterine cramping today. As a result of the berberis? Should I continue?
MRyerson last decade
Is there any bleeding from the cyst right now?

How about the pain, pus, burning, itching or constipation?

You may read all you want, but, it will only bring more confusion and worry.
nawazkhan last decade
You are right. I will trust your remedy and take as prescribed. There has been no bleeding today, only pus, light yellowish, beige and watery. I think less pus than yesterday. Little to no pain at all. No constipation, but quite a lot of gas pains. No burning or itching.
Thank you again Dr. Nawaz. You are very kind and helpful to aid me in this.
MRyerson last decade
So, let's stop BV Q as there is no bleeding.
