| | Pierced Nipples are Swollen
I got my nipples pierced about a year ago, everything was fine until about 3 or 5 months ago when they started to swell up kind of big. I didn't do anything to them until about 4 months later; like trying to clean them good with Hydrogen Perozise and Tea Tree Oil, incase they were infected. After doing that for almost 2 weeks the swelling was not going down and I just took the nipple rings out b/c they were starting to hurt from cleaning them so much. I thought maybe they didn't have an infection, maybe just swollen. Well, they have been out for about a month and my nipples are still huge compared to what the used to be. I know I probably need to see a doctor, but I'm in the middle of moving and I don't have the time or money right now, and it might be over a month before I finally get a chance. Is there anything I can do on my own to try to get them back to normal; or is there a possibility that they might never be the same size again. It almost looks like I have 3 nipples on each of my breast. The main normal nipple and then one small 'bulge' coming out of the lest side and right side. Thanks for any help.
