    I have a dermal piercing on my finger I got around a year ago, all been fine never a problem!
    I knocked it last week not bad but not lightly either and it was fine all week but this morning it was fine then started to get itchy throughout the day when I looked it's swollen up and is really really red and looks a little blotchy rash it's still itching now and I Noticed it has slanted towards my nail a little as if it's rejecting a piercer said it's probably just irritated but I'm not sure if it's a little more than that I soaked it in sea salt for about 20 minutes, put a lot of savlon cream on it and sort of bandaged it up
    Has anyone got any advice on it at all??

    Keep an eye on it but if it gets worse you might want to see a doctor. Is it oozing?
