Tea tree oil? Yes, this is a wonder oil. I love the look of a nose piercing and twice I’ve had the same nostril done (over the last two years) only to allow it to close 6+ months later due to ‘the bump’. This bump does not appear right away but waits 30 days to make it’s presence known; it appears to be a keloid. From my view in the mirror, it looks like a pimple, from the side it is red and raised. To date I have followed the piercers instructions to a ‘T’ and wonder what has gone wrong.

Surfing the web for a solution, I found this site; the author speaks of the same bump I am experiencing and how straight tea tree oil helped her bump to disappear in three days. Numerous other commenters note the same success. Ok, I’ve got three days. Beginning today (7/1/09), lets see what happens!

7/13/2009: Well, da bump is gone! *hears the crowd cheering* For me it took a few more than three days and that is ok – I am so happy that it worked! Cleaned it with the saline spray the peircer gives you and then using a paper towel, applied the tea tree oil (pharmacuetical strength). A word of caution about using essential oils neat (without dilution) – always do your research and make sure what you have is safe to use.

Just had to post my celebration!

  2. Pics pretty please? I would love to see it. I let mine go after my husband thought it wasn't a good idea and I've missed it ever since. I'm thinking of having it done again. My contact info is on the blog if you'd rather show in private.If I had my druthers I'd also get my tongue done and a snug (?) on both ears. So I'm doing some serious piercing pondering…

  8. I love that look. My stud is between the crease and end of my nose. It is supposed to be a 'white diamond' though there is nothing sparkley about it. It is titanium as I was concerned about rejection – Silver posts drive my ears crazy! I'd like to find something a bit smaller that my nose will not be red over.
