I Just Got My Belly Button Pierced A Week Ago And Around It A Rash Is StartingTo Form. Is It Infected? Can I Be Allergic To Bactine?

Dear Kelsey,
It sounds like a possble allergic reaction to something, possibly the bactine. Stop using the bactine for a while and see if it goes away. Wash with an antibacterial soap and keep the area dry. If it does not go away, becomes worse, or you develop symptoms like swelling, pus or foul odor see your physician.
