I have my nose pierced (for 8/9 months now) and naturally, i got the dreaded piercing bump which stayed for around 2 weeks. It went down and there was dead skin and a scab, after my normal cleaning regime ( sea salt water twice a day) the skin where the bump was which was above the piercing is dark/discoloured. I went to a piercer who said it was a scar but nothing to worry about. But due to my young age, naturally i am worried as i feel like everyone is staring at it but it is small, just circular, grey/purple colour but flat.

I have been using Bio Oil for 2 days and it has gone a bit lighter but i am still concerned about it as it is unsightly (to me), is there any ways i could help move the healing process along faster?

Hi Anon,
Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

If what you are currently using (Bio Oil) is working, I would continue with it and give it more time. Another option that might yield quicker results but is more expensive is laser scar reduction treatments.

I hope this helps.
Be well,
