Size:  91.9 KB Hi, had my nose pierced professionally about three months ago. Changed it to a ring myself because I kept ripping the stud out my accident, piercer said that it was still a little swollen when I asked before I changed it but I'm impatient. Been fine for a good few weeks but I've started swimming classes and I don't go under the water but my nose obviously isn't happy.

    Infection or keloid bump?? Advise please

    This looks like an infection rather keloid scarring to me... Go to the piercing parlour and get it looked over.

    Is your jewellery silver or stainless steel? Sometimes people have reactions to sterling silver because of the presence of other metals in it's makeup. You might be better with titanium or stainless steel jewellery.
