    Default irritation above Nostril Piercing

    This is my first piercing. I got my nose done over 3 months ago. Went to a very reputable place, done with needle, titanium stud custom bent l shape. At the beginning of april a small bump appeared. A few days later it was blood red, burst, bled A LOT. Went to piercer, he told me it was irritation. He told me to use provon twice a day and SSS at night for 5 mins. OK great. That worked. Thing went away. It came back a week later and has stayed and bled about everyday for almost 3 and a half weeks now. He then told me to use Aspirin paste. Tried that, made it totally worse. It will bleed if the stud is moved because the scab that forms over will break off. Basically what it is when you lift the stud up is an abundance of overgrown tissue that if bothered will bleed and when the stud is down that tissue I guess mushes around the top of the piercing. The only thing i haven't done is LITHA. Nobody has any answers. I'd just like it to stop bleeding sporadically and go away. Anyone have any ideas, because all the 300 thousand (exaggeration) people i've asked or looked up have no idea. there is no pain, it's not generating from the hole. Thanks, pics included.

    This is how it looked before I just cleaned the blood

    Looks like a small granuloma. Let it dry out, don't soak it, don't put anything on it. Leave it alone. If it bleeds use a stip-tic if you can.

    My last granuloma I ended up using a teeny, teeny, infinitissimly small dab of cortisone cream. It worked well for me. So also an option, but try leaving it alone first
