bump for life? :(

I got my nose pierced on the 4th of November (2006) with a CBR. For the first little while it was doing fine, just healing normally, and about 2 weeks after I started to notice this weird gooey red thing was coming out of it (sorry I couldnt think of any other way to describe it:P). I realized that I was probably just cleaning it too much (sea salt soak twice a day, washed it with spectro jel, and put this spray stuff that my piercer gave me on it). So about a week later, the weird gooey red thing turned into the bump.. So I decided to just leave my piercing alone.

I left it alone for about 2 months and STILL nothing was happening...the bump just stayed there..sometimes getting bigger and sometimes getting smaller..but it never completely left.

It's been almost 4 months now and the damn thing is STILL there :( I don't understand what I'm doing. Im washing my face as if the piercing is not there at all (like i read in many other forums). My piercer suggested I put hydrocortizone cream on it..and I tried that, but it didn't make a difference at all..

I'm really scared that this might be a keloid or whatever its called?:S I'm losing hope and don't know what else to do! I'll take any suggestions I can get at this point!

Oh, and there seems to be a small bump on the inside of my nostral too..but its hard to tell.


Since you have done some damage to the piercing, its going to take some time to get it back to normal.

You have read our forum and know that we recommend warm water compresses.  Give this a try and see how its doing in a week.

The body is trying to heal the piercing but you have irritated it and it has to deal with that part first before it can do the job of healing.  Please be patient.
