Is a pilonidal cyst contagious?

Submitted by Marcus Knight on October 2, 2010 in Frequently Asked Questions

Marcus, the quick and short answer as to whether or not pilonidal cysts are contagious is a definite NO. They never have been nor will they ever be.

Chickenpox, the common cold and measles are contagious. Thankfully, you can scratch pilonidal cysts off that list.

This means you can go out and interact with others with no fear of transmitting the disease to anyone else. Conversely, if you don’t have a pilonidal cyst but someone in your family does, there should be no fear of you contracting the disease either.

A pilonidal cyst is not contagious because it cannot be transferred from one person to another, either by germs or physical contact. If it was contagious, there would be a lot more people in the world with this disease than there currently are.

So the question is, if it’s not contagious then how does it spread. Well, to get the answer to this question check out my exclusive report where you will discover exactly what ONE thing in your body actually caused this disease! SHOCKING INFO!

Contagious or not, you should still attempt to maintain your pilonidal cyst and keep it clean and dry.
