I had my left nipple pierced about 6 months ago. It healed fine with no problems since, but after removing it about three days ago, I awoke the next morning to a very swollen nipple, it was pushing against the balls on either end of the bar and is very painful. As the day wore on, I noticed white fluid oozing from one side of the piercing. Despite going back to my origional cleaning routine for the past few days, (salt soaks and cleaning the sites 3 times a day) the symptoms have not improved.
Any advice, it is currently painful to wear anything heavier than a t-shirt, and to make matters worse I’m heading off to a festival for a week in 2 days time.
It sounds like you have inadvertently cause some type of damage to your piercing. “White fluid oozing” is not uncommon nor is it something to worry to much about. It is your body’s answer to the damage. Continue your aftercare routine and it should get back to normal in a few weeks.
If the damage was caused by the jewelry you might want to consider upgrading to a internally threaded titanium barbell to help prevent that from happening again in the future.
