Significant time has passed and efficacy of rabies vaccine at this juncture is not 100%. Still my advice is to take vaccine along with tetanus toxoid. If the cat is domestic and healthy you need not worry.

Pilonidal Sinus - Say No to Surgery!

M.S. (Ayurveda), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Pilonidal Sinus - Say No to Surgery!

Pilonidal Sinus/ Cyst is Characterized By 
•    Small nodular swelling in the lower spinal region with occasional discharges that may stain undergarments. Sometimes mild pain may also be noticed. 
•    It is usually seen in adults of college/ school going age & with hairy skin. 

Pilonidal Sinus/ Cyst seldom heal with medicinal treatment. Any medication whether allopathic, Ayurvedic or homeopathic may show some temporary relief but do not eradicate the problem. In most of the patients having pilonidal sinus/ cyst, surgeons usually recommend surgical procedures like Z-plasty etc. Even after surgery the chances of recurrences are always there. Post operative pain, hospitalization and chances of recurrence are the factors which suggest that surgery is not the appropriate method of treating pilonidal sinus/ cyst. 

TREATMENT OF CHOICE (AYURVEDA) - 
In Ayurveda, a parasurgical treatment known as Ksharsutra therapy is an effective treatment for pilonidal sinus/ cyst. Treatment method includes proper identification of sinus tract wrt. to its depth, direction and branching pattern. This could be achieved via sinogram or skilled probing. Once the sinus tract has been properly identified, a super specialized medicated thread i.e. Graded ksharsutra™ is placed in the tract. The medicine from the medicated thread is gradually released which leads to debridement of the sinus tract which means unhealthy tissue, pus, hairs are expelled out from the tract. The proper and complete debridement of the tract induces healing of the sinus which subsequently heals. The medicine coated thread remains effective for 7-10 days after which it has to be replaced by a new thread.

Usually, in a sinus of approx. 5 cm length, 6-8 sittings of medicated thread replacement are required at a weekly interval. Ksharsutra therapy being a non surgical opd procedure doesn't involve any hospitalization or bed rest and patients can resume their routine work immediately after treatment. Graded ksharsutra™ treatment is the treatment of choice for Pilonidal Sinus as chances of recurrence are seldom seen. The facility of Graded ksharasutra™ is available only at Sushruta Anorectal Institute.

Pilonidal Sinus/ Cyst Treatment FAQs

Question 1 - What is Pilonidal Sinus/ Cyst Disease?

Answer - Pilonidal Sinus disease is seen as a small nodular swelling in the lower spinal region with occasional discharges of pus & blood. It is most commonly found in people with hairy skin. Some times mild pain may also be noticed. The main problem is that it keeps on developing again and again after short period of remission. As the problem aggravates, the size of the swelling & pus discharges also increase. It is usually not noticeable in the beginning till it keeps recurring again and again. It is advisable not to get it operated as the chances of recurrence after surgery are pretty high, where as in Ayurveda with the help of Graded ksharsutra™, this problem can be completely cured without surgery. *(There is no guarantee of specific results and the results can vary.)

Question 2 - What are the Causes of Pilonidal Sinus Disease?

Answer -Pilonidal sinus is also known as the jeep riders back problem. The problem was first recorded on a large scale during world war II in the soldiers who rode jeeps and motorbikes on a frequent basis. Though, the reason behind the occurrence of the issue is really not known it is believed that in growing hairs and hairs penetrating the skin are main cause. The problem is more common in people who have hairy skin. Home remedies for Pilonidal Sinus? Answer - Pilonidal Sinus is an infective condition usually seen in hairy skin individuals. As such there is no home remedy for Pilonidal Sinus. So instead of wasting time in searching for home remedies; you should plan for complete treatment i.e. Ksharsutra Treatment for Pilonidal Sinus as soon as possible.

Question 3 - What are the ways of identifying a Pilonidal Sinus and Recognizing Signs of Infection?

Answer -The main problem with identifying Pilonidal Sinus Infection is; it cannot be done till it grows to a certain extent. At first, it appears like a normal boil on the skin. When it does not go away with time; pus starts discharging out of it. We have demarcated a few of the signs that may help you in detecting the problem.

  1. Sensation of pain while sitting or standing in the low back region.
  2. The cyst appears swollen
  3. Pus and blood mixed watery discharge from the cyst
  4. eddened skin near the cyst
  5. Cyst forming again and again

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello doctors, Which days are safer for sex with wife without any safety materials.?

PG Diploma in YOGA, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Ghaziabad
Dear , safe period is calculated on the basis of cycle duration. Day 1 is first day of the period start. If monthly cycle is regular each month and of 28 days, then day 9 to 18 is unsafe for sex. Other days are usually safe for sex. For extra protection leave 2 more days both side so day 7-20 is unsafe. On the basis of cycle days there are variation of some days. Thanks.

1. Yes homoeopathy mainatins heat to normal. Loss of body fluids cause rise in body temperature. It can occur due to prolonged exposure to high atmospheric temperature or a brief exposure to very high atmospheric temperature (direct exposure to sun is not necessary) or due to heavy manual work in high temperature, high humidity. Pre-existing chronic diseases and alcoholism are some of the predisposing factors. Tips -lie down with feet elevated, if possible. Fan and sponge skin with cool water. Drink cool fluids (water is best). In homoeopathy there are many remedies for erectile dysfunction 2. The important homeopathic remedies for erectile dysfunction are: damiana, yohimbinum, acid phosphoricum, lycopodium, agnus castus, caladium seguinum, selenium. Etc. Message me in detail for treatment to find out the sexual disposition answer following -. Are you excited or is all excitement absent? are you able to get an erection but it fails? at what point does it fail? are erections completely absent? do you have a history of sexually transmitted diseases? is there a history of sexual excesses or masturbation? are there any physical changes since the erectile dysfunction? homeopathy help best to treat and cure erectile dysfunction.
