STOP CALLING BUMPS ON YOUR PIERCING KELOIDS!!

August 05, 2020 2 min read

Many people may not know this but there is a difference between piercing bumps and keloids. To find out more on this subject continue reading.

First things first, most people call their piercing bumps keloids when they are not. We need to remove the word "keloid" from our vocabulary and start using piercing bump or an irritation bump.

Keloid

If you're wondering what a keloid is, it's an excessive amount of scar tissue that grows above the skin and covers a larger area. So it is not just a bump it is a mass of skin that grows and spreads, it is also known to be genetic. The best way to know if your keloids are caused through genetics is to ask your family members if they, themselves have experienced it before or you can also visit a doctor. Keloids typically form on different parts of the body like the back, arm and etc. There is no puss or liquid coming from keloids because it is just raised skin. For keloids you would need to visit a doctor.

Piercing Bump

A piercing bump is formed whenever your piercing gets hit or caught onto something. What forms is a bump that is raw and is filled with fluids and it feels very tender. The difference between a piercing bump and a keloid is that a piercing bump can grow but also shrink down. A lot of people ask why does it go away and then come back? In all honesty that is just your body trying to heal it. It has nothing to do with your piercing being done incorrectly. It can form when it's irritated or even not cleaned enough. To treat a piercing bump you can try using saline solution soaks or even try diluting tea tree oil and washing it off after 15 minutes.
