nose pierce bump

by Sherry

My daughter got her nose pierced 10/19/10. She now has a 'bump' that is visible on top of her nose and inside. The 'bump' seems to go from the jewlery (top) to the curve in the nose ring. I don't think it's infected, it looks more like a growth of extra skin. Any recommendations?

Don't Worry

I had my nose pierced about a year ago and the same thing happened to me for the first few months so i looked it up and yes its a small growth of the skin around the piercing and is usually due to the stud being knocked around/bumped which affects the healing process. to help it you can buy sea salt from a supermarket and mix it with warm water then soak some clean fabric in the mixture and hold to the nose as a compress which helps to reduce the bump after a week or so. Once healed make sure that you don't knock the piercing again as it can reappear and the more times this happens the longer it will take to heal!

allergic reaction

I had the same thing happen to my cartilage piercing on my ear. She's probably just allergic to the metal of the piercing. I recommend switching to a higher karat gold piercing.
