    What's happening with my navel ring? It has a bubble it doesn't hurt but I'm worried!

    I clean it everyday with saline solution. I'm very careful with it! Ugh why me? My camera is very good so the photo is clear on what I'm showing.

    For the sake of your own health and self-preservation, please see a doctor immediately and refrain from asking these sorts of qustions online where any quack or average Joe will tell you things, intentionally or not, that are not true or helpful to you. This could be any number of things benign or not but only a doctor that can physically examine you and take into account many OTHER things can give you an accurate answer and appropriate help. PLEASE see a doctor and never leave your health or choices to see or not see a doctor to online commenters. There are a number of horror stories that begin in this manner.

      A doctor will say take out any piercing. And I will be going to a piercer tomorrow if its not cold. I'm looking for  knowledgeable answers from people that have experienced the same thing not someone telling me what to do. Thank you.

      A piercer is not a medical doctor concerned about your health & able to determine in combination with other things what is going on. Good luck to you. Sorry that I actually care about a complete stranger's health.

    Hard to tell from the picture but the little bump looks like hypertrophic scarring.  Your piercer will be able to recognize it immediately if it is as it's quite common.  If you've snagged it on anything that usually is the start of that problem.  Could also be a reaction to the metal - might be worth switching it to titanium once you're able to take it out.

    Assuming you went to a reputable piercer, they ARE very knowledgeable when it comes to piercing complications (it's literally their job) and won't pretend to be a doctor if it's something complicated.

    Definitely ask them about it.  I had the little bump on my nose piercing for years and it finally went down after I switched it out to a smaller gauge - but sometimes it just takes time.  Keep it clean and if the piercer seems unsure or says it's infected then don't be afraid to see a doctor, I don't actually think most would make you take it out unless it was absolutely necessary.

    This could be an infection or it could be scar tissue formation. In either case, see a doctor.
