The time my piercing got a nasty infection

By Christina from Palm Harbor.
 I’ve had my belly button piercing for almost a year now. A few months ago, I got this really cute belly button ring from my state fair. They told me it was surgical steel. So you know, I went ahead and bought it. The only problem with it is that the ball screwed in from the bottom instead of the top of the jewelry. I absolutely loved it. But after a week or so, I noticed my belly button was looking a little red and painful. I figured I hit it or spelt on it funny. So I shrugged it off. A few days later, I noticed it stared oozing green goo. You know the nasty green stuff that body oozes to show that you have an infection? It was nasty! I had begged my parents for two years to get my belly button pierced, so I was definitely not giving up this easily, even though my mom kept nagging at me to take it out because she thinks shes a bad influence on me. whatever. I changed the belly button ring, and smothered it in rubbing alcohol and single anti biotic ointment. That seemed to help a boat load. S now I wear a 14k gold Captive Bead Ring (CBR) and I’m really happy with it. Although it was insanely difficult to get the ball to go in between the two rods.

  1. uhmmmmm you arent suppose to put rubbing alcohol on your belly peircing at all because it will dry it outand it will get infected more easily
