Localized purulent infection of skin and subcutaneous tissue are in gluteal furrow, formed on the place of ingrown and inflamed hair (remains of the embryonic development). It is induced by prolonged sitting (professional drivers – ‘jeep seat disease’), greasy, hairy skin (more often in men), excessive swearing (athletes – cyclists, rowers).
Symptoms: pain, localized swelling and redness, difficulty sitting, even walking; elevated temperature. Symptoms degrade with spontaneous spraying and expulsion of pus-like content; inflammation quickly relapses, usually with stronger intensity.
Treatment is exclusively surgical.
In the acute phase it is possible to do an incision and simply evacuate the pus;
In remission, it is necessary to definitively solve the problem: do an excision (cutting) of the growth completely, together with the abscess capsule and complete content; cavity needs to be washed, do drainage and leave it wide open due to spontaneous gradual healing.
There is significantly less tissue trauma if the procedure is done with in radiofrequency technique.
