About 1-2 months ago i got a nose piercing and


Q: About 1-2 months ago i got a nose piercing and 2 weeks intoTmy new piercing I was getting dressed and my shirt snagged on it and ripped it out of my noise and this has happened a few times after that and I noticed a small lump under my right nostril and it didn't hurt so I wasn't worried I had gotten into a physical altercation and my nose ring came out (I had a hoop) and I noticed it had gotten bigger a few days after that it gotten bigger to the point where it (I think) it was closing part of opening where I breath (I wasnt spreading like that it was just big) the last night I fell asleep with it in my nose and I this morning it wasn't so I got another ring (smaller) and tried to put it in the hole it hurt and it didn't go all the way so I decided to let it close until my mom found my ring so I tried to put it in it went through but the lump had moved the hole so I tried a different route and I heard some skin tear so I pulled it out and when I did that I pulled my nose up to look at the bump some puss came out and it like a brownish color mixed with blood before I had a puss problem but it wasn't huge like for me to trip off of and it was white so this time it was more runny I put it back in and took it out and lifted my nose again and more came out but less than last time so I did some research and some people said it was a keloid and others said it was an infection like my mom I want to know what it is please help
