Have bump on nose near piercing with pus and blood. Cure?

Hi, I got my nose pierced exactly 3 weeks ago. I got it pierced using a gun-shot and right now I m wearing a sterling silver nose ring And only this week I have developed a bump next to the piercing. A bit of pus and blood came out of it. I have been cleaning it with Dettol and warm water, but haven t been very regular. I live in India and I have looked for sea salt in grocery stores but haven t found any. Many people online recommended the sea salt soak. Can using warm water diluted be an alternative? Please help me out!

Hye! You developed granuloma with infection due to silver. You remove nose ring. And take antibiotic and antiinflammatory drugs for cure. Let it be healed. After few months , again go for peircing of nose ,but use gold nose ring. If again same disease develops, then repeat the treatment. And never go for peircing the nose. But still consult ENT surgeon or dermatologist for expert advice.
