Remedies For Pilonidal Sinus Without Surgery

aloeAlthough wit surgery you get rid of Pilonidal Sinus but Surgery is a painful procedure and embarrassing as well. It takes many months to recover after surgery.

Then why not try some Home Remedies for your Pilonidal Sinus? They are not painful, not costly and there are high chances of recovery.

 Take Hot Baths

Put Warm water in a tub and mix some Pyodine drops in it. Now sit in the water for at least 5 minutes. Everyday do this twice. It will greatly help to end the infection, pain and swelling of your Pilonidal Sinus.

Avoid Pressure

Try to avoid the pressure on the Tailbone area. Don’t drive the Motorcycle. Don’t sit for long periods of time. It can irritate your Pilonidal Sinus.


Strong Antibiotics can also heal your Pilonidal Sinus if it is not very large in size. Take advice of your doctor before using Antibiotics. Wide spectrum Antibiotics are helpful.


The spice turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and can be taken mixed with water or you can find a capsule form at a natural foods store. Another option is making a paste of turmeric and water and cover the cyst with this mixture. Make sure you cover it with gauze or a bandage since turmeric can stain the skin or clothing.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oils have natural antiseptic properties that are helpful for issues with the skin. The application of one drop daily to the boil can perhaps shrink it.

Naturopaths also believe in the healing power of castor oil. Try applying some castor oil to a cotton ball and placing it over the boil.

Aloe Vera

another pilonidal cyst home treatment is Aloe Vera, which is typically used for skin affections. It has antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, wound healing, purgative and anti-inflammatory properties. Once a day, drink half glass of aloe vera juice.

This is considerably sour. Some brands sell pinnacle or grape flavored aloe vera juice, which is more enjoyable.

One of the most common pilonidal cyst home remedies that people recommend is applying raw, hot Aloe vera juice on the cyst to make it burstopen and expel all its pus. This tends to work in the case of other cysts but not pilonidal cysts, since the bacteria in them are of the most complicated. Plus, the raw, hot aloe vera juice may burn your skin, causing more problems. Drinking aloe vera juice has the same effect as applying it hot in its raw form on the cyst.


Next natural remedies for sinus infection I recommend is Fenugreek, which is used for inflammation and boils, among other issues.

Fenugreek is sold in capsules or powder. If you get the former, take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the night, and if you get the latter, on the same schedule, mix half tablespoon of it in boiling water (half glass) and wait for the beverage to cool before drinking it.

Another common pilonidal cyst home treatment that people recommend is making a paste with Fenugreek powder and applying it on the affected area. But for experience I can tell you that this makes nothing but a mess. The paste is really difficult to remove once it dries up.

As one of your pilonidal cyst home remedies, I recommend Fenugreek in capsules, since it’s the easiest way to take Fenugreek. Preparing a beverage with its powder takes around 10-15 minutes. If you have a busy life, you may leave that for later in the day and end up not taking the beverage as often as you should, or not at all.


The third of the natural remedies for sinus infection I recommend is Garlic, which has a wider sphere of action than the past 2 herbal supplements regarding skin affections. It has antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, antiparasitic, antiprotozoan, antiviral, antigungal, anthelmintic, immunestimulating, hypotensive, diaphoretic, antispasmodic and cholagogue properties. Garlic is sold in capsules or juice. If you get the former, take 2 capsules in the morning and in the night, and if you get the latter, on the same schedule, drink half glass.

epsom salts

Take a tablespoon of Epsom salt, add 2 to 3 drops of tea tree oil then add hot water. Stir everything really well until the salts have dissolved and pour the contents onto a clean towel. Place the hot towel on your pilonidal cyst for about 20 minutes. Repeat this process as many times as you like.
