lol, scar tissue is when you take out a pericing and let the wound heal, it will be hearder and probably bumpy in that area, and harder to peirce next time around.
what you have sounds normal, and is just the bodies healing process
navle rings can take even up to a year to heal
but what you have should go away withing 3 months
just take care of it but dont overclean it!
