Anonymous asked: I have a nose piercing question and since you have one I wanted to ask you if you ever got like a little bump next to it? I've had it for almost two weeks now and noticed I have one and idk if its a pimple or a keloid or what >.< Also how long did it take for yours to heal?
i was actually super lucky with the healing process of mine, especially since i snagged it pretty hard a few days after…surprisingly, somehow, i’ve never dealt with scar tissue, and it healed fairly quickly. i’m not sure i’m going to be any help; it could be a pimple, especially if you’re fussing with it a lot and using something that has the potential to clog pores when you wash your face. it could also very well be a keloid, they’re common. it could be hypertrophic scarring as well; unlike a keyloid, this kind of scarring will not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound. thanks, google.
ask your piercer for their opinion, or get to a doctor if you can. especially if you’re this concerned about it!! good luck.
my inability to trust in the universe in regards to my own life despite knowing, understanding, and having proof that it works everything out the way it’s all supposed to untangle is often more stressing than whatever bullshit i am faced with to make me doubt it.
