    So I got my nose pierced during the summer holidays this year (about two weeks in) and everything was fine. Then after a couple of days, my piercing was bumped and it started to hurt and become sort of inflamed. I kept on using the saline/lotion?? thing the piercer gave to me to clean it and it was ok. I also had a minor infection but eventually was ok. Soon after, a bump started to grow. My mum told me to change the piercing to another one and (not knowing any better) I did except it didn’t go all the way through. I went to the jewellers (wearing my original stud) and got a new one, this time it was a wire one you had to sort of maneuvour in. That didn’t work because my bump was too big and was in the way it was supposed to go. I went back to the jewellers the next day and they told me the bump formed because of the stud I first wore was not real gold and should be taken out after a few weeks (hence why I got an infection). I then bought a real gold nose ring and put that in. It’s been about two weeks and there is no sign of my bump healing at all. I’ve been using a sea salt soak for about 2-3 days now. I’m not sure how long I should wait to see if it starts healing before going to my GP.Please advise me guys! I just don’t know what to do :/And sorry what I wrote is so long!Thank you ❤️
