I have had a bump forming on one side of my septum, which judging by previous experience and everything else I have seen, would assume it is hypertropic scarring. The jewelry I was pierced with, a 10g retainer I would guess to be the cause, as the wearable area seemed too small as well as it was curved, putting excessive pressure on one side. The bump is on the top, forcing that side of the jewelry down, making it seem uneven. Not even a week ago now, I switched it out for a 10g GWS pyrex retainer.
Anyways, as far as treatment goes, I'm curious as to what you all recommend - I've heard everything from aspirin paste, to chamomile tea soaks, to tea tree oil. Would downsizing be a possible treatment as well? I almost bought a bottle of tea tree oil for it, but I saw a warning NOT to use it on mucous membrane. I'm just more hesitant to use things on my septum than I would be for something like a cartilage piercing...
By the way, I've been doing 1 or 2 SSS a day, 10-15 min in length.
Thanks in advance
