If you can justify spending $500-3000 on a purse or $200-500 on some “limited edition they made 500 of them” sneakers but can’t seem to spend $75-200 on a piercing that will not fall apart, wear out or suddenly become last season then you need to shift your priorities.
Your sneakers or purse purchase can’t give you hepatitis (hopefully) but your low quality $20 piercing could potentially do that.
Get hip and out cool your friends with a professional and quality piercing.
Probably just a little bit of scar tissue than inflames when your body and immune system are stressed. Just avoid popping or picking at it. A good night’s rest and some vitamins might help shorten the cold. Sea salt / saline soaks should help with the bump.
Don’t pass out with your shoes on when there is an artist and a sharpie around
