Hi, A sinus tract is a narrow tunnel (a small abnormal channel) in the body. A sinus tract typically goes between a focus of infection in deeper tissues to the skin surface. This means that the tract may discharge pus from time to time on to the skin.Most common sinus in anal region is pilonidal sinus , drainage of pus with regular dressing is needed. Consult surgeon and necessary.
