pilonidal cyst

dear doctor,I've been suffering from pilonidal cyst cyst problem for past 3 years. I have visited a few doctors off and on and everyone suggested a surgery, which I'm afraid of. Initially cyst was just releasing pus but now bleeding and stiff pain has also accompanied. I want to try homeopathic remedy before opting for surgery. I've read a few prescription you suggested other fellas over forum but it was difficult for me to discern the relevant remedy for me. If you could please help me by suggesting some relevant prescription? I'm 27 years of age now. I'm waiting eagerly for your reply. (daily_wiki)

Thank you for your reply to the post, I will start taking medicine from this Sunday 09-03-2014.
daily_wiki 9 years ago
Dear R.P. Tamhankar,

I have started treatment on 09-03-2014, since then the cyst has swollen twice and bursted and pus and blood was excreted. Before this swelling the cyst feels more hard than before It was used to be, however it is no more painful as before. I'm using the locally made homeopathic medicine. Is the treatment going in right direction as I do not see much improvement?
daily_wiki 9 years ago
You only wrote that no more pains as before. It means you are better
PL take same medicines for next 10 days.
Only once 15 days are over, (gap)then take again one dose of 6 pills of Penicilin-1m again (only one dose). Other medicines to continue

Pl give feedback after 10 days

R.P. Tamhankar

Dear R.P. Tamhankar;
Thanx for your timely responses. There is no doubt that situation has improved as far as pain is concerned, but after even bursting the cyst remains in place that is why I said no much improvement is observed. However I would continue this medication for the said days. I'm hopefull I'll get rid of it.

Dear R.P. Tamhankar;

Now the cyst has drained completely for the 2nd time and has become a small rounded and comparatively hard bulge. Should I continue the same medication for said days or you suggest some changes?

Dear R.P. Tamhankar;
the cyst is draining for the 3rd time during last 2 weeks of medicataion, but this time it is much painful and I feel a bit higher temperature as well. However the cyst size which it was used to be before bursting is smaller. 16 days of medication have completed. Is it going in right direction?

Is there any pin-hole (small vent) to the cyst..?

R.P. Tamhankar
shouse_nsk 9 years ago
yeah It's almost discharged through the small vent (pin-hole). It always develops a small opening when it is ripe and discharges through it. I'm curious how will the infection(coil of hair or whatever) through this small openning? His openning develops due to the body weight while sleeping.

Pl take
1. Calceria Sulph-200 in place of Silica-200
Pl take revised treatment for 10 days and then give feedback

Dear R.P. Tamhankar;

I'm using Calc. Sulph-200 since 29-03-2014. Today the cyst has drained for the 4th time. It feels pain free now. But I'm curious whether the main source of this infection has drained or not; because it's worthless if main coil of hair or any other source of infection is not out of skin. Moreover my previous medicine is finished and now homepath has given me drops instead of pills. How many drops should I take in order to match my 6 pills daily dose? And finally can I use Silicea 200 with Calc. Sulph to improve its effectiveness? It might be silly but If I did not use Silicia, it will go to waste bin, otherwise... :)
daily_wiki 9 years ago
OK, you can use both.Only the thing that please keep some time gap of 30-40 minutes between two medicines.

Dear R.P. Tamhankar;

Now the medication course for said days is complete but cyst stays alive. In the past week cyst has continued to discharge and it is still discharging puss in runny liquid state (not very thick). Moreover I've started to doubt homeopathy's capability in treating pilonidal cyst. I want to know would you recommend any change in medication? The cyst is fairly smaller now but it still exists. Should I continue the medication for more days or go to surgeon for operation? You may well understand it is a chronic cyst and cannot wait for much long... Please reply me comprehensively!
daily_wiki 9 years ago
When you say that the size of the cyst is reduced and and no pains. It means the medicines are working. It will take some time as it is a chronic illness. You should have some patience and tenacity.

Did you take Penicilin-1m on every Sunday..?

Pl continue the medicines for next week and then give me feedback

I appreciate your efforts in responding as early as possible.
Well the cyst size has reduced and it is lesser painful, no doubt about that. Actually I was worried about the sluggish (slow) activity of homeopathy. If you say it's due to the chronic illness then it makes sense. I'm taking Pencilin and other medicine on regular times and intervals as you prescribed. I'll continue the medicine for another week and get you then...
Have a good day!

Dear R.P. Tamhankar;

Cyst has drained for another time, but it feels a bit more raised in size. Moreover the discharge consists blood mostly, not puss. I'm continuing with the same medicine. Should I continue using it???

Dear RP Tamhankar:

I have continued medicine for 2 more weeks, but the cyst remains defiant. It discharged once again but medicine seems loosing its efficacy for this chronic problem. As the sweating season has kicked in, the cyst itches fiercely. Should I continue the medicine as prescribed. I am taking 6 drops hepar sulph in morning, 6 drops silicea in noon, 6 drops calc sulph in evening and same dose of penicillin weekly. Should I continue the meds in same doses and timings or you see any changes in it?
daily_wiki 9 years ago
1. Pl take Penicilin-1m once in fortnight (not weekly)
2. Pl stop Silica-200.
3. Pl continue Hep Suplh and Calc Sulph
4. Pl add Gun Powder-3x one tablet twice a day in the treatment
Pl give feedback after one week

R.P. Tamhankar

Hi there;

I am continuing with same meds as you suggested, but it's unfortunate that I could not add gun powder in my daily dose because I am much busier in preparation of my PMS exams (equivalent to IAS exams in india). I will start it soon. However I am very punctual with the rest of the medication. As far as current condition of cyst is concerned it starts draining off and on and draining today as well. Pain is no more and I can sit in poses I was unable to, previously, but should not forget, the cyst is still present. Should I continue the meds in the same way and doses? Do I need to add gun powder as well?
daily_wiki 9 years ago
Pl try to procure Gun powder at earliest. and start it.
Other medicines to continue as it is for next 15 days and then give feedback

R.P. Tamhankar
