    Hydrogen peroxide. I had a pilonidal cyst that was so painful and infected that I had to have it removed, and afterwards my doctor poured hydrogen peroxide into the area for weeks to clean it.

    Wash with cetaphyl brand cleanser or another similar one. One recommendation is to apply some castor oil before covering with a gauze bandage. But if you have had it incised or drained by a doctor you are best off getting advice through that doctor’s office.

    Pretty much anything can cause irritation. I would try some witch hazel.
