Is there a hard knot under the piercing? (like a marble under the skin) Is it warm to the touch? Does it hurt? Is it red and inflamed? Does puss sometimes ooze out?
“Yes” to these could indicate an abscess. An infection is trapped and could burst. Don’t squeeze it and don’t remove the jewelry until your doctor tells you to. See a doctor immediately, this could become very serious!
