    Help! It's on my nose piercing.

    Any suggestions on how to get rid of it? I really don't want to take out my nose ring because I don't want to have to get it re-pierced through scar tissue. I'll take a pic and upload it if anyone wants to see.

    :eek3: :wtc:

    I'd like to see a pic just out of curiosity. From what I've heard the best way to get rid of one once it has started is to have it removed.

    Not entirely sure I want to do that on the off chance that it keloids as well.

    This is definitely not hard like a keloid according to that link. It's soft and tends to get irritated if I bug the piercing, like when my boyfriend's nostril got caught on it. Don't ask :big grin:

    I've been putting a sea salt/tea tree oil hot compress on it for a few days now, hopefully that will get rid of it in a few weeks.

    a friend of mine got one on his nose, under the ring.
    he took it out to stop it from getting bigger. then got it cut off by a dermatologist.

    Why do so many people confuse keloids with hypertrophic scarring?

    I'm at work now but I'll post a pic later on of a rather large keloid that developed on my ear.

    I think because the body piercers tell them they have keloids. :dunno:

    White people generally aren't prone to keloids so I was a little iffy if mine really was a keloid.

    Anyways after a few days, it looks like it's starting to go down with sea salt & tea tree oil compresses every night for ten minutes :)
