    It isnt red, theres no pain but it is pretty hard. What is it and how do i get rid of it???

    I had 14ga CBRs in when i noticed the bumps. I dont think i had them when i first got them pierced at 16ga

    Got a pic of the bump?

    I had to take my industrial out about a week ago. I had this ball growing on the side of the piercing that as soon as I took it out went down dramatically. Could be white cell build up as some one else said. Keloids take time to develop so if it's a new piercing it could just be a part of the healing process.

    I had one of those in the same place. Plastic surgen took it off in the office. Took maybe 5 minutes, 3 stitches. If you don't get it looked at it could keep growing.

    maybe its because you let some dude pierce your ears who had no clue what he was doing??? could that be it?? hmmmm

    its probably just irritation... your "piercer" more than likely gave you bad aftecare. short sea salt soaks and leaving the piercings alone should clear it up.

    Never noticed the bumps with original barbells.
    Maybe it was because i upped to a larger gauge before they were fully healed?

    I dont know but ive been doing sea salt soaks at least 3 times a day and the bumps are dissapearing.
