The Nose Ring Bump
the nose ring bump
*sigh* so im sure anybody who's ever had their nose pierced has experienced this problem at least once...so you see all the girls with the super tiny diamonds in there noses and think omg so cute! So you go have yours pierced yadayada well then a while later you notice it. the god awful "nose ring bump". Every one who I've seen get it, it looks different. And I just spent a bunch of time researching about it. Theres soo many different ways people can think of to get rid of it. Theres most definitely not one exact way that works for everyone.
Soo the whole point of this is for the next person frustrated with their bump who decides to google it like I did...here's my story:
I had my nose pierced for several years before I found out what was causing me to get the nose ring bump, and now that I have had it closed for a year or so, I have a pretty ugly scar on my nose. It looks like a giant blackhead. Let me tell you why. My nose ring bump was always bothering me so I was always picking at it. It would grow into like a squishy pimple, sometimes big, sometimes small. It never grew over the piercing, just right on the side of it. It would always fill up with puss so I would pop it and drain it. After awhile the bump was always there and kept getting harder and nothing would come out except blood when I tried to pop it. That is because I was building up scar tissue from messing with it so much.
I went to several piercers and asked them, and they for some reason had no idea what was causing it. Finally, I experienced a similar problem with two other piercings that I had on my face and realized that the reason I kept getting the nose ring bump was because my body was rejecting the fake metal that I was using. I remember a period of time that I had a solid gold nose ring and never had the bump at all. Some people are lucky and their body is not allergic to the metal so the piercing just heals without any problems. But if you keep getting the nose ring bump , you are most likely allergic to the metal. You have to take care of it right away because you do not want a scar or scar tissue to build up. Make sure you always wash your hands and sterilize everything. Try getting a solid gold or silver nose ring. That will almost guaranteed fix the problem. If not, then you should just take the piercing out as bad as you don't want to.
I hope this helps!! Please feel free to comment !
