Hi, i have got a recurring nose piercing bump. It keeps coming back every few weeks i would like to keep my piercing but was wondering how do i get rid of it for good?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

No breathing problems at all. The piercing does not hurt at all either. I got my nose pierced in Feb

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

It is likely a cyst that keeps becoming inflamed.

Has any doctor examined this?

No, i have not been to a specialist. But the GP said it's a scar
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It flattens but never really goes away
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

There is a cyst in the scar most likely.

And it gets re inflammed.

It would have to be removed surgically to fix it permanently.

Getting rid of the piercing might do it, or not.

It might actually need scar revision, cyst removal.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also: Hopefully this helps and I have earned a 5 rating from you today. [This has to be clicked on the rating scale on your page.] A 5 rating specifically allows me to have full credit and continue my accurate service as well as providing follow up to you as needed, and it costs you nothing more.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
