    Default Navel Healing?

    So my navel was pierced around February 16th, so it's just over two months old

    after a few initial problems, I'm still getting a lot of greeny-yellow fluid and am using the LITHA method combined with showering and occasional saline cleaning - this seems to wor the best for me with all my piercings. I know these piercings migrate, and take a long time to heal.

    however, I am now unsure what to do - imo it looks like it's starting to reject as around the top sight there's what looks like a scar. The size between the two piercing sites has shrunk minimally, which I thought was to be expected.

    So, a few opinions with more educated people would be much appreciated!

    It looks fine, remember they can take a good 6-9 months to heal.

    Brilliant, thank you! Very reassuring

    I know they can take a good bit of time to heal, and think I was just a little worried as the amount of skin between both ends had shrunk but that could just be as the final few bits of swelling have gone down or the piercing has migrated slightly. The white ring of skin around the top site can be sort-of seen in the photos, and that has been my biggest concern however the piercing is pain free, redness has come down and the only thing I notice is the lymph and that the skin can get a bit flaky sometimes.

    My navel has been pierced for 2 months now and it's not healed yet... Just a slow healing piercing I guess
