This isn't just another piercing question. I have my belly button pierced twice (top and bottom) and recently on the top one there is a kind of bump forming. It doesn't really hurt, even when I squeeze it. It makes my top bar kind of difficult to slide in and out (I have quite a long bar, 0.5cm longer than it needs to be) and it's slightly red. I just have no idea what it is. The top is about 8 months old and the bottom around a month and a half old. Also it was fine most of the time, then started being a bit pussy (it was kind of white, I don't know if that's pus) I last had it a couple of days ago and this bump has been there for about 2 weeks, it's gotten a bit bigger and that's why I'm asking you guys [Smile] Picture included. Thank you in advance [Smile]

It might be a cyst, but really, since it's been there for a couple weeks, now is the time to see a doctor to get treatment for a possible infection.
