  • Bump next to nose piercing

    Posted by clojo on March 27, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    Hi,
    3 weeks ago i has my nose pierced,= with a stud, and a few days ago i knocked it and since then i have a red, bleeding spot next to the piercing. it keeps scabbing and then the scab falls off and it bleeds and it does this a few times a day. What else can i do for it? i am currently using pure tea tree oil

    Thank you!

    I wouldn’t use tea tree oil. It will further irritate the piercing. Firstly stop touching it and try not to bump it, hot compress three times a day and just spray it with warm salty water. Avoid make up around the piercing and stick a little bandaid over it at night so you can’t knock it out while you’re sleeping. The bumps are caused by irritation, you need to ease up on the piercing. It will come good.
