It's great u shared u had Ksharsutra for pilonidal sinus, hope ur changing threads after every 8days either will work better, Ksharsutra has almost negligible recurrence rate so u can count on ayurveda n its surgery.
Hello, in allopathic medicine, for surgery for pilonidal sinus they use betadine to dressing. So in your case you can use betadine. But recurrence is not guaranteed here. Because it depends on the procedure you have undergone, and how well it has been done. You can have further follow up with the general surgeon.
