IS MY NAVEL PIERCING INFECTED?

I pierced this by myself three days ago and it was fine but now it looks like the top is sinking into my skin and it’s become irritated.

    Your piercing is very swollen, and it doesn't look like it has been pierced properly.  This is most likely infected because you did it yourself.  I would go to your doctor.

      It looks like it has been pierced too deep into the skin, so yes it is in the wrong place.  The only way to fix it is to take it out and let it heal.  I wouldn't do that without instructions from a doctor.

    Of course it's infected. You have no clue as to the risks of DIY piercing. See a doctor asap before you develop septicaemia which is frequently fatal.
