Is my belly button ring infected?

I got my belly pierced a couple of months ago and I been using a surgical steel belly ring but I noticed that it started to get purple around and inside my belly button also there were little bumps all around. and also its red all around the purple part as well. and just today my skin started to peel. there is no puss or anything coming out. this has been going on for about two and a half weeks so I thought it may have been an allergic reaction so I changed my belly ring to a 14k gold one yesterday since my body usually can take gold. but also I thought it could be a fungal infection im not very sure. I’ve been cleaning it with antibacterial soap, and bactine. I also been putting neopsorin on it. I just dont know what else to do. can anybody please give me some advice on what I need to do??!!

Answer #1

Why don’t you return to the place that DID the piercing, and ask them…

Answer #2

the same thing happened to me so I went back to the place I got it done and they gave me a cream and I put it on 2-4 times a day and it went away within 2 weeks.
