    Hi all,
    I am hoping for some advice for my navel piercing. I got it pierced in July of 2019, so it’s been a year and two months. It continues to be painful and produce some discharge from both the top and bottom holes. It does not seem infected, just stuck in the healing process. I have been diligent about cleaning it and using saline spray, so I’m not sure why it is not healing. I have had my navel pierced in the past and it healed perfectly fine, but I allowed the hole to close, and this most recent piercing does not seem to be responding well. I’m wondering if it has something to do with scar tissue? I’m thinking of replacing the jewelry and giving it a deep clean in between the swap – do folks think that might help? Would love to hear any advice.
    Thanks!
