SOURCE: I took this picture.
This is a picture of my brother’s earlobe. They’ve been pierced for about 9 months now, and these red lumps formed quite awhile ago. He picks at them a lot and refuses to admit they’re anything wrong with his piercings!
He got them done at a very reputable shop that I got two of my own piercings at. However, to my knowledge he did not follow proper cleaning steps.
What’s awful? He’s got angry red lumps coming off his piercings! I’m really not sure if it’s a keloid or a bubble of some sort.
How to fix it: Go to a professional or doctor, see what they recommend. Follow proper healing instructions!
doctor wont do shit, that’s hypertrophioc scarring; its normal. not a sign of a bad piercing. it just needs tea tree oil twice a day for a week or so and they’ll disappear.
