It's common for individuals with a fever to feel paradoxically cold. They may shiver and request blankets. Chills can also occur as a result of the infected pilonidal cyst itself.2‘Pilonidal Cyst - Symptoms and Causes.’ Mayo Clinic, 19 Nov. 2020, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pilonidal-cyst/symptoms-causes/syc-20376329

While chills alone may not be a medical emergency, they're a symptom that should be monitored. If a person's skin becomes clammy and cold, if they shiver continually or their body temperature drops well below the normal 98.6 degrees, it may signal a potentially dangerous complication that requires medical attention.4‘Sepsis: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment & Prevention.’ Cleveland Clinic, my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/12361-sepsis
