Pilonidal Cyst | Prevention


How can I help prevent an infection of my pilonidal cyst in the future?

  • Shave around the cyst area to help prevent hairs from getting into the cyst.
  • Clean the cyst area with a mild soap and rinse well to remove any soap residue.
  • Avoid sitting for long periods of time.
