Pilonidal Sinus - Say No To Surgery!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MS-Ayurveda

Pilonidal Sinus - Say No To Surgery!

Pilonidal Sinus is a disease commonly seen in the people with hairy skin. Disease presents as a small nodular swelling in the lower spinal region with off and on blood mixed pus and watery discharges. This sinus is formed because of underlying hairs which are impacted beneath the skin and act as a source of infection. Once the pus is formed; it creates a passage to come out on the skin; thus a sinus is formed.This disease is usually not curable by oral medication like anti biotics etc., Ayurvedic as well as homeopathic oral medication is also of not much help. 

Now a days; pilonidal sinus patients are treated with surgery/ Z plasty. With these surgical procedure; chances of recurrence are as high as 15 %. 

How ever in Ayurveda; Pilonidal Sinus can be very effectively and very conveniently treated by Graded Ksharsutra. In this procedure; first the sinus tract is defined with respect to its depth, direction  and branching pattern with careful probing and sinogram. Once the sinus tract has been precisely defined; medicated Ksharsutra is placed in the tract with the help of certain instruments.  Now from this medicated thread; medicine is gradually released in the tract. This medicine (Kshara) induces a potent debridement effect on the sinus tract as a result all the unhealthy fibrogranulomatous tissue, pus pockets and accumulated hairs etc. are cleared from the tract. The medicinal coating on the thread gets dissolved hence the thread has to be replaced by a new thread with in a week or two. 

The sinus tract heals at the rate of 0.5 to 1 cm per sitting. Thus a small sinus tract which is around 4-5 cm long may take around 8-10 sittings  to heal completely. The chances of recurrence of Sinus tract after Ksharsutra treatment are predictably ZERO. 

The treatment is far better than surgery as- 

  1. No hospitalization or bed rest required
  2. Patient can continue his normal routine activities
  3. Chances of recurrence are predictably ZERO
  4. No shaving of hairs or laser treatment for hair removal required

I want to know how to avoid pregnancy naturally with out medicine's help? Age 26. Please advise.
Without medicines the failure rate of family planning methods is high meaning many get pregnant even if they don't want. Condoms, intra-uterine contraceptive device (iucd or loop), safety period, coitus interruptus are methods you can learn in details.

Dear Lybrate user, Ipill is an emergency contraceptive and should be used as an emergency only. Repeated intake is not advisable. Coming to your question, usually ipill is meant to be used for one act. At times, it acts. The chances that it will not act is more.

Seeds for health



Neha Bhatia tells us about healthy seeds. Seeds are tiny but power packed foods stuff. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. Each seed has its own benefit. You can add them in food, salads, trail mixes, or just garnish desserts with it. You must have noticed, these days lot of processed foods have seeds added to them for example multigrain bread, chikki, chivdas etc to add on the nutritional and fiber value of these foods. Let’s talk about the health benefits of some seeds

Rich in lignans and omega 3 fatty acids which reduce cholesterol and prevent heart problems by unclogging arteries.
Due to its high fiber, it helps to control blood sugar levels and keep diabetes under check. 2 tbsp of flaxseeds/ day in powdered form is great and can be added to soups, salads, veggies, buttermilk, curd etc.
It had an ability to regulate estrogen in the body and hence prevents breast cancers in women and pre menstrual syndrome (PMS).

You need to use an effective contraception. Contracetive pills like yasmin/ novelon are easily available in the market and affordable. They are very effective in preventing unwanted pregnancy if used consistently. There are however a few contraindications like active liver disease; migraines, propensity to form blood clots etc; other option is to get a copper or mirena coil fitted. Third option is to use barrier methods like condoms and diaphragms. They have to be used at the time of sex. But the failure rates are slightly higher.

Drinking honey and lemon mixed with warm water every morning on an empty stomach is often touted as the best way to lose weight. But this mixture, if had at the right time in the day, can do much more than help you reach your weight loss goal.

Hello- ideal mestruation cycle is some what around 28 days (2 days +/-). If your cycle repeats in 20 days than it is quite possible that in prolonged picture you will develop anemia (due to loss of blood) and will result in improper flow or less flow during the cycle. As your symptoms suggest you might be suffering from the issue discussed above and yes its a serious issue. Try this ayurveic treatment to improve your condition and make your menses normal- a) dadimadi ghrita 1 tsp twice daily. B) abhra loha 1 tab twice daily. C) kuberaksha vati 1 tab twice daily. D) avoid spicy and fast food and do increase dairy products like ghee and milk in your diet.

How to increase weight during pregnancy. Iam in my 13th week of pregnancy, till now I have not gained proper weight. Is this normal or do I need to consult regarding this issue.

Many women do not pit on much weight in first 3months, usually this is because of nausea and vomiting. Once this settles down, you can gain weight more easily. How much weight you put on, depends on your wright prior to pregnancy. For a woman of average built, this is usually 10 to 14 kg, and more for lean and thin ones. Eat a balanced diet, focus on proteins; dal, sprouts, paneer, milk, curd, eggs etc. Make sure you take fruits, vegetables and few nuts daily. Eat more frequently, say, every 2 to 3 hrs and you will put on weight easily.

The infection of fetuses with HBV from the spermatozoa of carrier fathers seems unlikely, especially in an area where pre-conception hepatitis B vaccination is routinely provided. So it clear that man with Hepatitis B can have unprotected (baby-making) sex with a woman without getting her or their child infected by first ensuring that the woman is successfully vaccinated against HepB. If she has been vaccinated successfully, she will not become infected with the virus, nor will she pass it down to her child.

Normally after fitting iucd, just after periods, there is little but negligible trauma to the innermost layer of uterus & woman does get spotting/ bleeding for about a week. Do get it checked for fitting. An ill fitting device leads to irritation and irregular bleeding. Get an ultrasound test done to rule out other causes of irregular bleeding.

Hello- Yes there is. Excessive blood loss through menses will cause blood deficiency in the body and may lead to anemia. It can further complicate in edema/swelling in the body if left untreated.

I am going for a first time sex with my girl friend but I feared about the pregnancy and also she is virgin. please suggest me what to do. What type of contraceptive pill will be best as she is 26 years old.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Hi, since it is the first time for your girlfriend she will experience some pain and also bleeding. To make her more comfortable I suggest you take things slowly and gently and use some lubricating jelly or coconut oil before the intercourse. Despite these precautions she may have pain or be uncomfortable. Regarding the pregnancy please follow contraception, either by using condoms or even oral contraceptive pills like locate etc. But whatever you decide I suggest not to skip out on good contraception if pregnancy is not desired. Hope this information has helped you. All the best.
