Tragus pierced. Bump beneath skin. Is it a bug bite?

I had my tragus peirced in April. I have never had any problems with this piercing up until the other day. I noticed a bump beneath my skin near my tragus. I have two tiny scabs beneath my tragus piercing, and that seems to be the only difference. I can t tell if I have a bug bite or if there is something wrong with my tragus. Its only swollen. there is no pain or redness. I m not sure what to do?

Thanks for writing in.

From what you have said, it looks like it is the result of not taking proper care of your piercing in April. It might be small healed granulation tissue that has caused the small bumps. You should have applied antiseptic cream on the piercing site at that time.

If it gets painful or there is any pus discharge, please consult your doctor. It should otherwise resolve on its own.

Hope this helps.
