removed piercing :(
Hey! I had my nose pierced approx. 1 and a half months ago, about 3 weeks ago i dreathded bump showed up next to my piercing and it had gotten bigger and redder the last 3 days. So brave little me took the piercing out to let the hypertrohic scar heal….But my problem is..i want to know how long it will take for the bump to go back down and my hole will close up? i know it will leave a scar but just how long will it take?????
Answer: Not trying to berate you or anything, but before I answer your question, I’d like to remind you (and everyone else) that the Submission box is for pictures/selfies, while the Ask box is for questions like this.
Anyways, as for your nose bump. It might go down on it’s own, and it might not. If it’s infected, even taking out your piercing might not help it alone. You can try one of the solutions listed in the FYNR FAQ for your bump, and if none of those works, you should see a doctor.
Your piercing hole should close up soon enough. I can’t say exactly when, as some people’s piercings close up much faster than others. But it will close up eventually.
