A Piercing Bump and How to Treat it

What is a piercing bump? Some piercings such as cartilage ear piercings and noses are prone to getting “bumps,” a small, raised area around the exits of the hole of the piercing. A lot of people will call them keloids. But in most cases, a bump is something different. What is a piercing bump and how can you heal it?

What Is a Piercing Bump?

A piercing bump is an irritation. Sometimes they are caused by allergies, genetics, incorrect fitting or incorrect jewelry, trauma such as sleeping on it or snagging it, or by piercing it incorrectly or with a piercing gun. Often it is just bad luck. Although these bumps are not dangerous, they can feel a little painful and itchy. They can also fill with blood and other fluids. This is not necessarily a sign of infection but it can be. If you think you have an infection, you should always seek medical attention. Read here how to heal your infection safe and fast.

What Causes a Piercing Bump

Our bodies are amazing at healing. However, we are not meant to have foreign objects in them. Once we injure ourselves, the body starts a series of steps to repair the area. A piercing is essentially a self-inflicted wound. You put a hole in your body and place an object there to keep the wound open. We are asking our bodies to heal around the jewelry and to create new tissue. Having the correct jewelry material and size and, above all, the proper aftercare is essential. Because we want our bodies to allow the piercing to stay and heal properly. Once you trigger your immune system, your body will adjust in ways you may not like and create a piercing bump.

How to Heal a Piercing Bump

To get rid of a piercing bump, you need to be patient as they can take a while to disappear. It could take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months to go away. You want to make sure you are taking care of the piercing bump in the meantime though. Because they can get worse without proper care. Don’t just hope it will go away by tiself. Check if you used the correct jewelry size and material. After that, all you need is Aphraheals.

    Hey there! Your care for piercing bumps is quite incorrect. If you’re trying to help a large community of people, it may be best to do actual research with higher quality studios and piercers. None of them will tell you that tea tree oil, no pull discs, or sea salt soaks will work. Tea tree oil is way too harsh and shouldn’t ever be used on an open wound; no pull discs, if they ever even “work”, will only, at best, momentarily take away a bump, but if you don’t actually get to the root of the problem, the bump will come back; and sea salt soaks, you have to be so precise for the mixture to use as a rinse, but the actual solution will do nothing to help the bump calm down. Please, please do your research thoroughly before giving information on a subject that involves peoples bodies. Thank you.

    I have worked in APP studios and in the professional piercing industry for the last five years, this is NOT what a client should be doing. This horrible misinformation puts people’s bodily health at risk and I advise you to talk to and connect with REPUTABLE piercers in your area and properly educate yourselves. You are where the clients who have done horrific damage to themselves that come into my studio get their information from. Shame on you.

    Tongue piercings also can put you at risk for bleeding and blood loss. You have a lot of blood vessels in the area.
