Granulomas are a common problem with nose piercings, but can easily be avoided if proper care is used. If you are more prone to infections, make sure you purchase a quality nose ring or any other type of nose jewelry. If you have had previous infections with certain metals with other piercings you've had (ex: an ear piercing), chances are your nose piercing will have a similar reaction.
Granuloma is a growth of tissue that will be located right on the edge of your nose piercing, beside your nose ring usually. It will begin by swelling and will become red. When you squeeze a granuloma it can cause it to bleed and pus. This growth is not harmful, but can look very unpleasing.
Many people have found that changing to a different type of metal (IE: using surgical steel, instead of silver) helps to reduce the granuloma. If you are taking proper care of the area, and avoiding touching it, then it should not take long to heal. You can also use a pure vitamin e-oil to help with the healing time.
