I got my belly pierced last week and the guy said it would take about 10 days for it to stop hurting....It's pretty much stopped now (my body usually heals really well) and the discharge has started. I know that discharge is normal, and that irritation isn't completely out of the question as it's an open wound with a piece of metal through it, but it's REALLY red. Around the top it's a dark pink and painful if I move certain ways, and my mom (who has her belly pierced, too) said that it doesn't look normal. My question is this...anyone out there who have their bellies pierced think this isn't normal? I'm sure it is, I mean it's only been a week and I'm cleaning it regularly the way I was told to, but my mom is freaking me out. Help!
