    Default Do I have a keloid?

    I got my Tragus pierced about a month ago. I've been doing the LITHA method(only rising with water once or twice a day). I had a bad reaction to salt water, so I thought this was better. And for the most part it was, no more dry or itchy ear, just this dreaded bump now. I'm scared it's a keloid! Help?

    Very unlikely unless you're prone to them.

    Looks like that bar would have been pretty long, do you know what it's made from as well?

    I aslo have a question. Is it possible for a hypertrophic scar to form within the first 1 or 2 days after piercing?
