    Hi,

    one idea is that the bar you have been pierced with may be too small for you. The other is that it could just be dry lymph fluid (whiteish in colour) which is perfectly normal with all new piercings, you just need to do a good salt soak to clean it. If in any doubt though go back to your piercer.

    Yes it's normal just keep cleaning it out regularly and you'll be fine.

    It sounds normal. Keep cleaning it as normal, and if it does become a problem go back and see your piercer.

    Yeah totally normal its when the stuff that comes out (not puss) dries and sticks to the bar. Mine does it all the time since ive only had it done a couple of weeks. Best thing to do is use warm salt water and a cotton wool bad and it should soak it off
