    thanks a lot. I went to the pharmacist first thing this morning, he gave me Bactroban, says that it works wonders and in a wk or so I should be infection free (Yay!)...Im actually thinking of taking out the piercing after the infection has healed tho I love it but it seems like so much pain and stress..and such a long healing process:(

    u r right....i usually worry a lot about these things, especially wen im not sure..When I got my ears pierced again I cleaned them about 4 times a day. Im so scared of infections lol and its so unnecessary. Im thinking of just going to a pharmacist and have him look at it, see what I can take for the infection and then go to my piercer. Thanks

    i've had my navel pierced for exactly 9 days....it was a bit swollen because my little cousins hit me by mistake a few times. I've been seen white pus from it and I was told it was normal along with crusting during the healing process. Now some of the skin is peeling where the crusting occurs plus there is a red patch of skin on the right of my navel. It has some small bumps and it burns when I touch it. Could this be a sign of infection? I've been following my piercer's instructions:Wash twice a day with antibacterial soaplet it dryUse a q-tip to clean with SavlonAnother q-tip with A& D ointmentI took a picture but I cant upload it with this post. I also have herpes so Im basically wondering could it be an infection, a normal part of the healing process or could touching the navel piercing then my skin has caused a herpes outbreak???

    so a few days ago my bf and i had sex a bit painful but it was pretty good & now today im seeing blood in my urine....I've also realized that i have this urge or tingling feeling to urinate...the sensation is like a cramp after I've peed..{the urination is sometimes only a few drops} need to Should I be totally petrified or is it because of the sexual pain a few days ago or could it be a bladder infection from holding my pee too long?NB: everything else is normal; no strange odor or irregular discharge, just the urination and blood
