    How to get rid of nose bump next to piercing?

    I got my nose pierced about 3 months ago, and everything was going fine until 2 weeks ago when I got the dreaded bump. I clean my piercing with dial anti bacterial soap, and also clean it with non iodized sea salt about 2-3 times a day. This is my second bump, my first popped on its own, and then peeled off. I went to the piercers and they assured me it wasn't an infection, it was a granuloma, and sea salt would work, but it really hasn't. I just really want it to go away. It isn't red, it doesn't hurt or smell bad, its just a bump.

    I've had my nose pierced twice and the first time I had to take it out because I had tried so many things to get the bump to go away that it just aggrevated it even more and it looked horrid. Tea tree oil was the final straw, after using it for a few weeks it was angrier and uglier than ever so I just gave up.

    I got it pierced again 11 months ago and the bump showed up about 9 months ago. I haven't done anything to it other than sea salt soaks for the first 6 months, now I just clean it regularly in the shower. It's taken almost a year but it's almost completely gone. If I bump it or snag it, it flares up again for a few days, but always goes back down to being virtually unnoticeable. I'm not sure if it will ever completely go away (my first one did after I took the jewelry out), but I don't notice it at all anymore so I don't really care.

    Just make sure to keep makeup away from it (I know it's tempting to cover it up), the makeup always makes mine worse. I would steer clear of the hydrocortisone, crushed Advil type remedies... I tried it all with my first piercing and it just made things worse.

    I would just give it some time with the sea salt soaks, and once you're able to change the jewelry maybe give titanium a try.

      Thank you! I tried tea tree oil as well, and it also made it look worse, so I am sticking to the non iodized sea salt and normal anti bacterial soap. It seems to be going down now, again. I don't want to take the ring out!  So hopefully it goes away!
