Does anyone else have a navel piercing? Each time I work out it seems to be inflamed a bit, does anyone else have this problem? How long did it take for yours to fully heal?
DodgedBullet saidI have hip piercings, not navel though ...
JJCrush saidIt might have to do with it not being healed, but how long have you had it? If its new it may be just a natural inflammation caused by increased blood flow to the region, if its in the healing process it may be caused by diffusion of a slight infection.
A though I did have though was you may be just slightly allergic to the metal used in the ring/bar. Some people react quite a bit to certain cheaper jewellery metals and can be allergic to the zinc or nickel which is used to cut the silver to make it more economical to produce. If you don't have a rash or inflammation normally it might be that when you are perspiring and moving you are increasing your skins active exposure and absorption of these metal, which may cause the irritation.
