I got my belly pierced last year feb/March and the barbell was too small so I changed it myself two months after and it kept on falling out then I’ve noticed a bump forming at the bottom part of it. There was one at the top too but I managed to get rid of it however the bottom one stayed and it’s like pink and stuff. Any tips bc I do clean it with saline solution and occasionally sage wash. I tried tea tree and my piercer is dumb he told me to poke it and put tea tree oil inside however the studio is a 5 star and hygienic and professional so idk

Get it checked and if it's an infection, sue them.

You should keep using saline solution 2-3 times a day, put some on a cotton bud and clean it and then use a dry cotton bud to wipe it dry and to make sure the saline doesn’t dry out your skin and make it worse. Ensure your barbell is of good metal preferably titanium if not sterling steel. If you are using tea tree oil make sure it’s diluted or it will dry you skin out and make it worse. If the hypertrophic scar on the piercing isn’t going down try Prontolind spray (buy it on Amazon) and it takes a couple of days to work but it’s really good. You should get some advice from a piercer but if you don’t rate your piercer your pharmacist or GP will be able to give you some great advice which will probably be better as they can assess your piercing. Good luck

It’s alright. Ye you use the spray and spray it on the affected area and then usually wipe around it’s with a cotton bud so it’s not dripping and keep the area clean

I don't have a belly iercing but I got bumps with some of my other piercings. I just crushed 1 aspirin tablet, mixed it with a little water until it was a thick paste and then I put a bit on it for a minute or two (not too long because it is a blood thinner) and then washed it with like warm water. If there's paste left store it with it covered it'll dry up and water can be added again

It’s really good, sometimes takes a few days to say a difference but it’s very good. Hope all goes well
