Can you pop a piercing bump?
Can I pop my nose piercing bump? NO. With keloids and granulomas there’s nothing to pop ‘out’ of your bump. And with pustules, just because you think you’re a dab hand at popping pimples on your face, does not mean you should be popping pustules on your piercings.
Why do I feel a ball in my ear piercing?
Lumps can form on the earlobe following a piercing. This is caused by the body making too much scar tissue, known as keloids, which spread out from the original wound, causing a small mass or bump which is bigger than the original piercing. A keloid will not go away on its own and will require surgical intervention.
Do keloids bleed when popped?
Keloid scars can bleed and become infected. They can affect any area of skin, but the most common areas include the shoulders, upper back and chest, neck, ears and face. If someone develops a keloid scar on one part of their body, their skin may still heal normally in other body areas.
Can keloids pop?
Should I pop my keloid? Please, don’t. Unlike a pimple, there’s nothing to effectively pop out of the bump. In fact, the likelihood of infection grows if you cause yet another wound near the new piercing.
Is there a way to reverse conch removal?

What happens if you leave a conch in your ear?
