    Default Really Bad Nose Piercing Bump!!

    So about 2 months ago I got my nose pierced
    It was all good for about 3 weeks and then I guess I got really lazy with the cleaning. .

    WORST MISTAKE EVER! They really dont joke about how it takes 6-8 weeks to heal and they get infected fairly quick...

    So I have this bump that is the same size as the ball of my piercing and it freaks me out

    1. What is it?
    And
    2. How do I get rid of it?

    I really don't want to take it out :(

    Here's a picture:

    It just looks irritated to me! Could be a granuloma or hypertrophic scarring. One of the more experienced people will be able to say more. No need to take it out, just baby it like it's new and it'll be fine.

    Hold off on how you treat it until someone can tell you what they think it is.

    I've quoted a reply of Hazel's from another thread that I read yesterday with regards to what kind of bump wants what kind of treatment.

    Nostril piercings take a lot longer than 6-8 weeks to heal, and I doubt it was infected. That looks like a granuloma which needs to be dried out to get rid of it, stick to just finding in the shower and don't out anything on it and it should go in its own time.

    Not sure if it's a granuloma they're often red fleshy looking and bleedy a bit like raw meat.

    How was the piercing done? Gun or needle?

    This has happened to me to, first a huge scab appeared, I accidentally knocked it off and underneath was a huge squishy lump :( I'm just trying to leave it alone and hope it goes away

    Hi! I had his exact problem. Tea tree oil will be your best friend. While you still need to clean it regularly, just one time applying tea tree oil to the bump will drastically shrink it. Apply it daily until it goes away completely. The bump might come back, as it's caused from irritation and nose piercing are prone to getting caught on things and bumped. Tea tree oil will always get rid of it!
