Is my new piercing infected?

    Hello all,
    This is my very first piercing. I got it on the 25th of Jan, so it's been 9 days now. I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is normal or not, what do you think? I clean it twice with saline solution and remove crusties, but the redness and frequency of crusties is worrying me.

    The picture does depict some crusting around the piercing site. Naval piercings can take a few weeks to a few months for healing. It doesn't look as bad as you may think, many people start to panic when they see anything other than a beautiful piercing. You must remember that we are dealing with the human body, and some crust and liquid production is natural. When dealing with crust, you should dab it with cotton, not wipe it.


    I would keep up with the cleaning, perhaps adding some Tea Tree Oil to help with any dryness. Keep an eye on it, and if you develop any problems with bleeding, excessive amounts of pus, or pain, set up an appointment with a doctor; those would be signs of an infection which require anti-biotics.

    I hope this helps.
