Question Navel Ring Issue

So, I'm a little worried... I had just gotten my belly button pierced almost 2 months ago and I'm just realizing a factor that had just started happening this past week or two. From what it looks like is that the inside of the piercing is coming through the bottom whole of the piercing in the belly button itself. I'm kinda worried that it's infected but I don't 100% think it is. If any help is available, I would love it! Thank you so much!

Re: Navel Ring Issue

If you have any pain, swelling, redness, irritation, or a fever, you could have an infection. Depending on the type of metal you have and how your body tolerates it, there is also the possibility that your body could be rejecting the ring. Everyone is different in how they tolerate foreign bodies inside them. Your body may not like this one. If you think you have an infection, it would be good to see a doctor. If you think it is rejecting, you may want to see the person who did the piercing (as long as they are trained to do this type of work).

Good luck to you.
