I pierced my lip on the right side, and I though it was healing well (no pain). I pierced my lip at the same place years ago but it made keloids so I took them off after a few months.
Now it seems the keloid grew, but only from the inside. (I say keloid but maybe it was hypertrophic scar, I don't know...)
Still NO PAIN. No pus.
So I don't think I have new keloids.
It looks like this : http://piercingbible.com/sites/all/f...car_tissue.JPG
(but like I said, I have this lump for years. Last months I got pierced again and my piercer pierced right above the lump.)

My lip seems a little bit swollen all the time but it's not, it just the lump inside that makes my lip look a little bigger on the right side.

Other than this, it's healing properly, for the first time (it's my 3rd time..)
I really don't wanna get rid of my piercing, so I'm taking any ideas that could help me.

Everyday, I clean my piercing with soap, and I make my lip soak in salty water for a few minute, brush teeth, use mouthwash...
It's not infected.. but maybe there are products I can use to shrink the lump? (I tried dexidin 0.5 on my industrial keloids and it worked as a charm!)

... tell me if I'm not clear :/
