Naval Peircing Infection?

I got my belly button peirced 10 days ago. I have been cleaning it as directed, but today when i woke up i noticed a greenish discharge from the peircing. It is slightly red around the peircing but it isnt really swollen or warm as i was told an infection should look like. I feel like its infected but im not 100% sure, does anyone know? And if it is infected does anyone know how i should go about treating it? Thanks!

Re: Naval Peircing Infection?

It sounds like it is starting to get infected. I would clean it with hydrigen peroxide three times a day and see if that will start it to start clear it up. It should start it clear up within two days. Take some aspirin also.

If it doesn't get better in two days, call or go back into where you had it done.
