Weird Bump around nose piercing (not keloid or granuloma)Watch
Around a month ago I got my nose pierced (I had to get it repierced about two weeks ago because the stud fell out in the night). However a week ago a small bump popped it (it looked a lot like a keloid or a granuloma) but I wasn't too concerned because I thought these are normal and I began to treat it using diluted tea tree oil and lavender oil. But over the past two days it has started to look very weird it's like another bump is growing on top of the first bump, it's starting to scab over and it's also become very large and nearly growing over the stud itself? I went to the doctors and she had no idea what it was and just handed me some antibiotics. I've looked all over the Internet for what this is and how to get rid of it, do I take it out do I keep it in? I doesn't look like a keloid or pustule or an infection, although it may have started off as a keloid and something has grown on top I have no idea.
Can someone please help me???
Go to a GOOD piercer, they are probably your best bet.
Also, why the **** is a doctor prescribing antibiotics when they don't know if what you have is an infection. Blizzare.
Yes it did actually, its perfectly fine now. I tried dissolving rock salt in hot water and soaking my nose in that but that didn't work, so instead I put some water on the bump and actually stuck the rock salt granules to it. It bled a little bit at first but after doing this for two nights it just fell off (ew ew) and my nose piercing was as good as new. Sometimes if I knock my nose a smaller version of the bump comes up again and I just sleep with some salt on it and it goes away. Good luck!
