Pilonidal Cyst Home Treatment, Natural Remedies for Sinus Infection

Pilonidal Cyst Home Treatment, Natural Remedies for Sinus Infection

Although pilonidal cyst isn’t life-threatening, it’s one of the most difficult diseases. Modern medicine fails to provide a definitive cure for pilonidal cyst: antibiotics don’t affect it, a cyst-drainage can’t totally get rid of the infection, and surgery has a high-risk of failure or recurrence besides being awfully hurtful. After trying one or more of these, unsuccessfully, or reading others’ experiences with them, many sufferers start looking for a pilonidal cyst home treatment that helps.

We shouldn’t forget that everything in nature has a purpose. For example, bees pollinate plants, which lead to the creation of new seeds that grow into new plants, and produce honey; silkworms produce cocoons that serve to produce silk; cows produce milk, which besides drinking it serves to produce dairy products; besides producing oxygen, fruits and vegetables, plants can reestablish or improve our health, some serve as natural remedies for sinus infection.

In this article I present pilonidal cyst home remedies. These aren’t a definitive cure, though, but will control the problem.

Aloe Vera

The first 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 burst-open 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.


The second of the 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, immune-stimulating, 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.


Keep in mind the pilonidal cyst home treatment above isn’t a cure but help control the problem. Use these herbs as specified every day and your cyst won’t grow massively like that of many pilonidal sufferers, and if it has already, it’ll decrease its size.
