Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
Yes a pilonidal cyst can absolutely occur in the crack or gluteal cleft.
Most of these cysts need to be incised and drained in order to heal properly.
You will also likely need oral antibiotics.
Please go to an ER for further evaluation and treatment.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
