I've his piercing for 3 months now. It has gotten infected once before however I cleaned it twice a day and it went away in a week however this time around it seems like it's not going away. there are no signs of puss or blood coming from the piercing & it is not sore or painful to touch it. it's just a bump. I've done research and discovered that it is not safe to take an infected belly piercing out because then infection could get trapped inside of your skin. I have been using a non iodized sea salt soak for 2 days now ( I soak it twice a day) and I dont think I've seen anything gettin better. It looks the same way as it did the first day. What should I do? The picture with the "ring" around my belly is the picture I took today after I used a shot glass to soak it. The other picture is the 1st picture I took of the bump. And They just look the same 😫 .
- Take it out since it's not infected.Vote A
- Keep it in because it's infected & continue to care for it with the sea salt soaks.Vote B

I think its best to take it off for a while and apply antiseptics or something and give ur belly air so it breathes and doesn't grow more bacteria0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I have one. Don't take it out. Doesn't look that bad. Normal in the beginning... mine looked similar in the beginning. But was only few weeks till it looked better0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
