    Default Nose problem - please help!!

    Here's the pic of my daughters piercing site.
    http://imgur.com/a/xY8HC

    She had it pierced on 23 DFec.
    It has a titanium stud
    She cleaned it diligently with saline, then used the tea tree oil as instructed by the piercer (Blue Banana)
    My thoughts are that she has been a bit OCD with the cleaning and removed all new skin growth.
    thios looks to me like granulation tissue.
    BTW - There was no sign of infection for 3 weeks

    Any ideas..as she will not take my advice...what do I know

    I am her mum
    I am a nurse...........that's not good enough!!
    Cheers everyone!

    Looks like over granulation to me as well. Tell her to leave it alone completely for a week, after that hot compress once a day as per the bump thread, if its showing no signs of going after this two week period... docs and a corse of fluxacillin and fucidin, (Or nick some fucidin from the store cupboard at work haha). From what i can gather fyi, bluebanana doesnt get a good rep, might be an idea to find a different piercer for any future piercings she may want.

    Tea Tree Oil on a relatively new piercing is not good. Spike offers some good advice for bumps, you'd do no wrong to follow what he says.

    Thanks for the info!
    My daughter was more receptive to your comments than my ideas! Even though they were pretty much the same!
    The nose is looking better already...now that she's not poking it about so much!

    The old addage LITHA "leave it the hell alone" works best for most piercings glad its looking better.
