    Default septum cheesy smell?

    I've had my septum pierced for around 8/9 weeks now , maybe a bit longer and this last couple of weeks there is an awful cheesy smell coming from it.
    i've searched it online and ive cleaned it with salt water and soap and everything i can think of yet its still very very strong :S

    any way to get rid of it?

    Mine does that :( Pretty rank, and it's only at a tiny size. No idea what you can do while it's still healing, once it's full healed lemon juice is supposed to be good.
    Face: Labret, medusa, septum, double nostrils, bridge.
    Ears: 8 lobes, 2 auricles, conch, tragus, 2 helixes, daith.
    Body: Nipples.

    Doesn't metal make the smell worse?

    And then I get my double nostril and microdermal sternum.

    Yeah... surgical steel is supposed to affect it, but I have titanium in mine and it's pretty nasty at times. Glass is supposed to stop it, but unless it's stretched, there's no real chance of getting glass jewellery. Plus, it's too soon to change it.

    Sounds real nice, yeah...

    I 'spose your only real option is to put up with the minging smell until you can change the jewellery to bioplast or something natural (like glass) or whatever will stop the stench.

    I'd just opt for cleaning it , tea-tree oil would help with healing and mask the smell
    Get it from superdrug, because it's diluted with 95% almond oil therefore would be so strong on your new-ish piercing

    All that shines,
    Turns to rust.
    All that stands, in time
    Turns to dust.

    Ya mines got a funk to it when I don't clean the plugs I have in. My didn't smell until I started stretching it though. I just use antibacterial soap on the jewerly and rub some inside my nose and then it smells nice n fresh.
