  • Hello doctor, I believe I have pilondal cyst and it came from no where. Its been a week and from that time I thought it was tailbone pain and did some stuff they said to do online to help treat it. It didn't get any better so I went to my doctor and he told me the same thing I read online and to get a cushion for sitting which I did, I also take ibuprofen for the pain. I did see a small bump but I thought it was just swelling which I read could be a symptom of tailbone pain. Until today I noticed a yellowish, funky smelling, gooey substance on that area and immediately looked online on what it could be. I'm pretty sure its pilondial cyst and that it just popped, so I was wondering if there's anything I can do to keep it from getting infected and to go away. I read some homemade remedies and tried the one where you dillute apple cider vinegar and dip a cotton ball on it then apply it to the affected area. Is that good and will that help? My bump is not that big but I dont really know what to do. Please help.
    Thank you for your time

  • I broke my coccyx when I was 12. About a year ago, my roommate spilled water on the floor and was too lazy to clean it up. I slipped and landed right on my coccyx again. It’s been a year and I work in dentistry. Sitting in those chairs is making the pain UNBEARABLE. IDK what to do bc doctors are STUPID these days.

  • Thanks for the info

  • What kind of doctor treats tailbone pain?..an orthopedist?

  • I think it's a nice video, I will consult my generalist in France for him to tell me what I have. I have some radios, but they are of hole vertebral columna, so I can't see well the part that gives me pain, and it's impossible to tell if it's damaged. And I'll see my ostheopath at the end of the month. Could also be a kyst. But I can't locate the pain. But it's seems upper left, not down. It has been long time I have back pains, but this one is the most painfull and the most long lasting, and never stop. I have mostly pain when I stay up. Not when I sit. Unless I sit where the pain is, aka on my back. Could be the coccys. I will have to look further then. But as a patient unless the doctor finds it, I don't think I can find it by myself.

  • hello! i’ve had tailbone pain for almost 5 months now and i haven’t fallen or hurt my tailbone in any way and i don’t know what to do. i went to the doctor and i had 2 xrays and everything seemed fine with the bone itself. i recently went to the chiropractor but that didn’t help. i was wondering if you have any tips or know what to do with my tailbone. it only hurts when i sit or go from sitting to standing. no one has any idea what it is. thinking about getting an mri but i am not sure? thank you!

  • I am currently going through my second cyst in my life. First one was when I was 16. I really don't want to go to a doctor but since I can't operate on my own tail bone, I doubt I'll get out of it lol.

  • I have a red line in my crack and red skin around it

  • Iv been taking Motrin and cleaning the area and it's been helping

  • I had fallen and hurt my tailbone I went to the hospital and they did and X-ray and said my tailbone was fine and it’s just sore . But then I realized I had this weird bump and I figured out it was a pilonidal cyst I’m very scared of getting surgery but I’m also aware that getting it drained doesn’t ensure it won’t come back again . How can I take care of it on my own at home ?

  • I have a massive pilonidal sinus above my buttocks, I fell down the stairs and my coccyx was bulging nearly piercing through the back of my anus , my buttocks get itchy nerves in the muscle and squashing them on a hard chair is the only relief, but now it has caused my coccyx to bulge at the right side of my anus it is not a hemmaroid it is my coccyx bulging really hard pushing my anus out really massively

  • Can these cyst be seen with MRI(?) test ?? .. moi, canada 🇨🇦

  • This pain is the worst!! It drains on its own but I’m so scared it will get infected 😣 my dr told me a few years ago to soak it in warm water or compress let it drain, is there anything I can put on it to heal faster? Relieve the pain
