Be aware of belly button ring infections – you can get them if you don’t follow the piercing aftercare guidelines.




The following article was submitted by a close friend of mine. I think it’s a great example of a problem experienced by thousands of people all around the world.

By Jim, from Arizona.

My wife got her belly button pierced but she didn’t take care of her new piercing well enough. She was given all the information needed to take a good care of her new belly button piercing. She was told to Belly Button Ring Infection

apply a saline solution twice a day to help the new belly button piercing to heal.

Although in the real life it happens a bit differently… We’re busy at work, have to do our chores at home, spend time with kids, and so on and on. ┬áIn this fast-paced life we often forget many important things. However, if you get a piercing, make sure to make time for it! If you ignore it or forget it, you will regret it!

In the picture above you can see my wife’s infected belly button piercing. You can see a red crusty edge around the belly button ring’s exit in the inner part of the navel. The other hole is also a bit reddish. These are sure signs of a belly button infection.

Initially my wife applied alcohol, although she was told by the piercer not to. Why didn’t she listen to him? We had a notion that alcohol cleans the wound and helps it – like when you have a cut on your finger. There was one thing we missed. Alcohol disinfects – not heals. Alcohol, peroxide and other corrosive agents dry out the wound and slows healing considerably.

Around that time I started to look up info regarding body piercing on the Internet and having read navel piercing aftercare information I realised we’d been wrong. Using sea salt and antibacterial soap is number one things to do to help your body heal the fresh piercing.

Later on a red bump formed inside of my wife’s navel right under the piercing and it burst one day when my wife touched the belly ring. Lots of puss and blood oozed out and a small piece of flesh was sticking out as well!

I know we should have gone to a doctor but we didn’t…

It vanished in a couple of weeks after successfully performing hot soaks in shower and saline solution soaks.

However, I really suggest you do it, because I think it was an abscess – a collection of puss formed due to the belly button ring infection and the growth of bacteria inside. And then only a professional can decide if a course of antibiotics is needed or some other kind of treatment.

Belly button ring infection was gone in about a month’s time and when another month had passed, the belly button piercing was finally healed.
