NIpple Piercing Healing: Scar Tissue Formation on One Side


Nipple Piercing with Barbell--well healedMy left nipple has been pierced the EXACT same amount as my right and it still leaks, nearly every morning I have crustys that I must clean off, and a bit through out the day. Nothing excessive, though sometimes in the morning I find dried blood. I have had to go up in size on my left nipple slightly when the nipple got a bit bigger but only on one side. I have pictures that I would gladly send, however I saw no option on your website for me to attach :( I want to know is there way to get my left nipple back to regular without having to take the piercing out? Is it rejecting at a very slow rate?  Will my nipple be this way forever?

Nipple Piercing with Barbell--with excess scar tissue formation

My reply:

You definitely do have some scar tissue formation going on there.

Do you feel like it is continuing to grow, or if it has stabilized?

I don't know if perhaps that side was pierced a little deeper than not he other one? In any case, I have some suggestions from my book for dealing with excess scar tissue (called hypertrophic scarring) and I posted it here on this website.
