    Default Belly button help! I think its rejecting

    So here's the deal, got my belly button pierced last sept. (2011), and didn't know how to take care of it. After much abuse from me, it rejected to the point I had to take it out in March of 2012. Well I found this site and learned from my mistakes, (bad metal, awful piercer, over cleaning), I got it repierced in July by a good piercer with a titanium barbell. I used the LITHA method, which seemed to work great. I had a few crusties the first or so, but after that nothing.

    However its been moving outward, a lot. I can't tell if its just me or if it really is rejecting again.

    Here's the picture I took right after having it done. For the record, it is straigh, for some reason this bar tilts like that, none of my other bars do.

    And now

    A lot more bar is visable now, if I poke at it at all, I can see about half the bar. It also seems to have joined up with the other hole from the first time I had it pierced.

    What do you guys think? If it really is rejecting, is there anyway to save it?

    ETA please excuse my fat belly haha.

    Last pic is too tiny to be able to see anything.
    Have: 2g lobes (11/11/12); L 16g conch (07/27/12); 14g VCH (09/01/12) | Next: stretch ALL the things! (lobes: 1g; VCH: 12g)
    Also Want: 8g septum, outer labia, nipples; too many tattoo ideas for my own good; goal size for lobes = 1/2" - 5/8"
    Is it weird that I love piercing crusties...?

    Go to where it was pierced &get them to take a look. It will also help you not worry. Mine was done in July but my naval was too small for the normal banana bar. I have a curved barbel in there now. As it is healing a lot more of the bar is showing. I am getting it checked again soon for my own peace of mind! I am still cleaning it in the shower with salt water (in an eyebath cup) & then at night with some cotton tips

    I've got to say it looks ok to me... I'm no expert but when mine rejected it was bloody well obvious something wasn't right. But Bimbielf is right, the piercer should put your mind at ease

    Don't use the soap/gel! Stick to the sea salt soaks but make sure you're getting the ratio right - what ratio are you using?

    Also no more than twice a day or you could be irritating it. A lot of people prefer to forget the soaks and just leave it alone and rinse it when you shower. For the first couple of weeks, a piercing can move about a bit just to get in a position that's comfortable for it, then it normally settles right down. What you're describing sounds like it's just new and irritated, probably because you keep playing with it and pushing the bar! Just leave it alone for a while and see how it settles. Eight days is still a really new piercing so don't panic if it's sore and itchy still. Mine took a good couple of weeks before the soreness went away.

    If you're still worried, post a picture. Upload it to a file sharing site then just post the link without the http:// and people can get a better idea.

    Sorry to say but it looks like it is rejecting, at least mine looked like that when it was rejecting.

    My advice is get to a piercer ASAP. If it's likely to be rejecting don't bother trying to save it. I did that and now have a horrible scar and had to retire the piercing anyway.

    Good luck!

    Can't really tell if its rejecting from the last picture, but it's definitely not pierced straight, unless your piercer used a wrongly bent bar. I have around thirty navel bars and none hang strange or off to one side. Your bottom hole is off center and going to your right.
    ------
    Current: 6xpinna (2mm L&R/2x1.2mm L 2x1.6mm R), 2xauricle (1.6/2mm R), 3rd lobes (2mm), nostril (2mm R), navel (1.6mm), inv. navel (1.6mm), tongue (1.6mm), eyebrow (1.2mm R), 1st lobes (10mm), tragus (1.2mm L), septum (3.5mm).


    Future: Eyebrow (L), 1st lobes (1/2"), scaffold (L), nape, nips, nostril (L), outer conch punch (6/8mm), VCH.


    Retired: Navel (1.6mm L/R) 8/1/14&2012, Misplaced 2nd lobe (1.2mm R) 10/3/13, 2nd lobes (1.6mm L&R) 11/9/13.
