Got this done middle of August and had a piercing change mid September the guy said it looked really good and healed just recently it bulged up. I went in and the guy said looked like something was in it so I started cleaning it again and it still has not changed although it does not bug me even when I touch it, and it isn’t pusing even when I’ve moved the bar to get a better look. No idea what it could be any ideas?

It could be to do with your actual jewellery, make sure that its free from scratches or barbs. Many cheap manufactures will have little burs or funny bits at the ends.

Secondly, it could also be from plaque build up on the bar itself. It’s totally normal for this to happen, but sometimes it can trap a bit of food or cause an irritating rough spot. Sometimes you can’t even see it, until you take the bar out.

I would suggest to first try a brand new (preferably internal thread titanium) barbell in there and see if it gets better. It might also be advisable to go back to your piercer to put it in and get them to check for any little bits of debris that might be trapped in the fistula.
