how can you tell when a Infected belly button piercing button is starting to get serious?
hey I'm annette and I got my belly button pierced last month on 0ctober 28th 2011 and until now November 26 its almost a month already. and at first around my piercing from the top it was red and friends keep telling me it was normal I got concern and worried because i didn't i think it was supposed to be like that so I taught it was fine but the redness didn't go away and it hurt alot. I had a lot of pain the first & 2nd week so I visited a doctor twice they gave me antibioticss pills and triple antibiotic ointment to use. and said it was a miner infection I have been cleaning it with sea salt water dial soap & bactine twince a day. I can't think off anything else to use and right now my skin looks kind off purple just a little around the piercing only on the top my cousin told me that my skin is starting to get rotten I hope not I don't want to remove it oh and puss would come out only the first to weeks but now it dose not should I still keep it. if you have any advice please let me know
