I took my piercing out a couple months ago b/c it was causing me pain, but I keep putting it back in every few days b/c I don't want the hole to close. For the past few weeks my belly button has been slowly turning into an outie, right now its more flat though. Starting a week ago when I'd put the barbell back in I'd have to force it through b/c it seems like the hole is closing. Now I've started to put it in every other day and this morning it hurt and bled a tiny, tiny bit. I really, really want to keep the hole, I don't want to get it repierced either, but do I just need to give up on it already? I feel like I need someone else to tell me to just let it go! What do you think?
