Greetings. Yes, sinus is a kind of a blind " tunnel " that opens onto the skin and as a result of collections and secretions, it can get infected and you would have symptoms like that of a boil. If it is a confirmed sinus, better get it removed surgically. Sinus in the upper buttock / sacral region may be a pilonidal sinus.
