Pilonidal sinus can not be treated with home remedies. Even Surgery is also not successful in treating Pilonidal sinus completely. There are always chances of recurrence of Pilonidal Sinus after Surgery. However Pilonidal Sinus can be completely and conveniently treated by Ksharsutra Treatment. In Ksharsutra treatment; a medicated thread is ligated in sinus tract. Medicine present in Ksharsutra acts as a strong debriding agent and promotes healing of sinus tract. Medicine present in Ksharsutra works for 7-10 days so it needs to be changed with a new Ksharsutra. No. Of Ksharsutra threads needed to heal sinus tract completely depends upon length, depth and branching pattern of sinus tract. So you need to visit clinic for clinical evaluation of your problem. It is observed that Sinus tract heals @ 0.5 to 1 cm per Ksharsutra change. You can visit clinic or contact through Lybrtae for further course of treatment.
