How can you tell if and when your belly button piercing is healed?
I got mines done on May 16, 2013. I've only been using a bar of normal "Dial" soap currently for the past couple of months, and it's been treating my piercing a lot better than anything else Ive used aside from the occasional sea salt soaks these past few months (had a horrible infection in the second month, but never knew what caused it. Was using tea tree oil, H2Ocean, Dove soap and sea salt soaks at the time, but infection worsened). Today, it is much much better. now I'm just hoping dial soap has been useful to other people with navel piercings as well, and not actually "harmful" to the piercing since some people have said that it's not recommended for cleaning your piercing because it is "harsh". There hasn't been any swelling, soreness, bleeding or oozing secretion from it either lately. As of now, it only leaves a little bit of crusties here and there. Im hoping this is a "good" sign that it's healing, but I don't want to jump to conclusions.
