Could I still be swelling from the piercing trauma in my nose if I pierced it 2 weeks ago?

I thought I still had swelling, but it seems as though I have a large bump on the inside of my nostril where the piercing is. I have been removing the piercing for cleaning.

Removing the piercing to clean it is irritating it as the jewelry should be left inside for 2 months before taking it out or changing it.

First, if you're constantly touching it... stop! The oils from your skin can cause continued infection. But do clean it with a Q-tip, tissue and the cleanser. The piercing gun is quite traumatic on your skin. Needle is the best, as it removes pierced skin, instead of blasting through it.
