Piercing Bump

24 August 2018
Moisture bumps often form near piercings. This can be due to various things and we will explain what you can best do about this.

A piercing bump is a common occurrence around the site of the piercing. The bump can be reddish and filled with liquid. It can be very small, but it can become much bigger and sometimes also painful.



Very often the cause of a bump is the pressure on the piercing. For example, by sleeping on it. In this case it's obvious where the pressure comes from and the cause can be clearly detected.
The piercing slowly finds the position in the body where there is less pressure on the piercing, which ultimately results in a crooked piercing.
The second common cause of the bump is a weakened immune system. It could be because of poor body condition, but it can also be because of pregnancy. That's why it is not recommended to get a piercing when you are pregnant.


The solution

After years of research and trials PW Team has finally found a solution to these common problems. It is a gauze filled with Pure Dead Sea Magnesium Crystals and Sea Flower (Aphraheals - Piercing Aftercare). The gauze should be made wet before it's fixed on the bump to ensure that the moisture is drawn out of the bump.

It seems too simple but this solution works great for most people. You get the best result by letting it sit for an average of 8 hours, for example while sleeping. Often the result is immediately visible. After 1 to 3 times of this treatment, the bump is usually gone. This treatment is easy to combine with a bioplast piercing pins and use of Medical Silicone Piercing Discs. Also apply as little pressure as possible to the piercing and lead a healthy lifestyle.
