    Exclamation 'The Bump' on my nose piercing.. Help!!

    I got my nose pierced just over 6 weeks ago and for the past couple of weeks I have noticed a soft red bump form on one side of my piercing. I did have some issues of getting used to the piercing, it got caught a lot and I did find myself to be sleeping on it by accident. One day it completely came out and I had to put it back in however, all of this was before the bump had formed. It has never been hot, no puss and no blood. It's just there, it's not even painful. I have tried sea salt soaks, tea tree oil and camomile tea soaks and nothing has got rid of it :( If there any suggestions on what I do I would love to hear them!
    Many thanks!

    Have you read the bump thread? Which kind of bump does it resemble? Have you tried leaving it along and letting it heal/dry up?

    I have, sorry forgot to add that. I believe it to be hypertrophic scarring. I haven't tried leaving to dry, I was worried that not cleaning it with soaks might cause more issues

    As mentioned on the bump thread they can take a long time to go. Sometimes doing nothing is for the best, especially when the piercing is still healing.

    Do you have a titanium screw or bar in it?
