Antibiotic Management

Eradication of the associated bacterial infection is an essential component of sound pilonidal treatment.

Superimposed bacterial infection always plays a role in the pilonidal disease process. One or more bacterial species are found in high concentration within the pus of an abscess, or along the inner lining of a sinus tract. In severe acute cases, the bacteria may course through the bloodstream and cause “sepsis”, a dangerous systemic condition affecting multiple organ systems.

Accordingly, appropriate antibiotic therapy is an integral part of a sound treatment plan. At PTCNJ, we tailor your antibiotic regimen to attack the specific bacteria involved. This is achieved through microscopic analysis of the fluid that is sampled from your wound. Proper antibiotic administration serves to hasten the healing process and augment surgical results.
