I've tried to upload a picture but I only have access via iPhone to the forum and I can't work out how to upload

    Thankyou in advance
    Are the bars titanium? You can upload a photo to Imgur and post it here.

    I have a slight problem with my lower navel piercing it seems to have migrated a bit which is fine but its been really infected and has a fleshy lump that bleeds when knocked. Can anyone share some experiences as to why or how to heal it better?

    Its an old piercing and I recently changed to a 16mm length bar to help it a it seems to be better atm!
    Sounds like it may be a granuloma, have a look at the bump thread to help. If it is that then keeping it dry can help. Make sure the bar isn't too long and is made of implant grade titanium.

I've tried sea salt salt camomile soaks, hydrocortisone cream, aspirin and just leaving it alone but nothing seems to work! Thinking I just need to retire :( but still reluctant any other advice would be so appreciated!
    Hi 2 months is very early days, they can take a good 6-12 months to settle fully. Have a read of the bump thread, it's very common.

    Not until they're fully healed which can be anything from 9-12 months or more unless it's an essential downsize.

    Hi I think I have a granuloma or hypertrophic scar underneath the bottom ball of my navel (hard to see so not 100% sure!). It's just me worrying a bit but the top ball is kinda flakey in the sense that is has like a patch of skin just missing and the bar is perhaps a mm less snug. I don't think it's migrating as it's not red or sore at all, is a small bump likely to put pressure on the piercing/push it forward a bit? I just don't know a lot about migration and don't want to ignore it if something's happening.
    Also forward helix has a bump on it probably due to having a long curved barbell in there, is it alright to change to a labret at 8 weeks old?

    How old is the navel piercing? Can you get a photo of it? Have a read of the bump thread, it has lots of advice in it.

    Get your piercer to change your forward helix to something more suitable.

    It's 8 months old, sorry for the terrible pictures, was the best I could get on my iPod.



    The bar's titanium so I know that's fine, and I just rinse it in the shower as it's been looking dry for a while now. Anything I can do to help it?
    Thanks for the help
