It takes a full year for a belly button piercing to heal completely so even if it feels fine still treat it as a wound and keep the area clean. Do not wear tight clothing that will press, pull or rub against the ring. It depends on the color of the fluid that was leaking out; If is clear fluid that's just part of the healing process if the fluid is yellow, green, filled with blood or you develop a fever its best to go to your doctor right away.

you should be able to find sea salt at your local health store make sure its 100% pure sea salt no colors, fragrances or additives. Try the GNC website if you want to purchase online

It will hurt you, and will have red color around it.

i got my belly button pierced on january 27 2013 it hasn't even been a month yet, but my piercing is red only around the top ball and the bottom. that's normal. i went to the doctors and they said that's just the process of healing. mine pus' and it doesn't hurt at all. you need to clean at least 2 times a day. i cleaned mine the first couple weeks every time i went to the bathroom just to be safe.
