What to clean a cyst with? ?
I have a pilonidal cyst that is reoccurring. What can I clean that area with that will be very safe for skin and not cause more irritation or infection to it? Thanks in advanced

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.

i would ask your doctor about 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.
