    Unhappy industrial piercing is it infected ?

    Well I got an industrial piercing nearly 2 months ago and its been fine no problem its migrated a bit but it did that in the first couple of days and has been fine since ive been cleaning it with sss twice a day with 1/4 teaspoon of salt to a cup of water but the past week ive relaxed with the cleaning a bit doing only once a day and ive notice a lot of yellow/whitish gunk lately more than ive been getting from my top hole its not hurting doesn't look to red but feels a little warm and ive had a little lump on the inside near my top hole does this sound like a start of an infection and if so how can I stop it

    In a word, no.

    You can probably calm the cleaning down to just rinsing in the shower. Sounds like normal lymph to me, and possibly a bit of hypertrophic scarring which is super common with industrial piercings.
    Try not to touch it, mess with it, sleep on it etc.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue
