    My dear husband has been in alot of pain since June and I think this might be what he has but we can't find anyone to correctly diagnose and treat him. He has been to five dr.s already including two dermatologist and a rectal surgeon. We have been to the e.r. twice and he has been on three seperate rounds of antibiotics, numerous tubes of creams, anti-bacterials, you name it.

    He is suffering so much right now and is still trying to work. He can hardly sleep and moans. We are at our wits end and he is getting worst. Has anyone here on our boards ever had this? P

    My daughter had one years ago. She went to a surgeon who drained it. She was fine after that. It never returned.I really don't understand why he's not getting help. Is it possible that it's not a pilonidal cyst? Hope he gets help soon. Judy
