    I left my belly bar out for a week thinking it would be fine to give it a bit of a break as I had it peirced 10/11 years ago, went to put it back in and it had healed over!! :growlmad:
    I had to re peirce it by forcing the bar through and breaking the skin and OMG did it hurt!! :wacko:
    I have been cleaning it with salt water and savlon antibacterial solution will it be ok?

    Hmmmm I did this a few months ago, mine closed over in a few days. I re pierced it like you did, it was red and itchy for a few days and then bam, it was fine. Just keep cleaning it!

    Thankyou everyone, I have got some plastic bars ready but need to cut them down slightly and have not got a threading tool so will get one of those and pop that in soon.
    They state only suitable for 'healed peircings' though and now that I had to re peirce it does that class it as a new peircing not a healed one?
