    is my tattoo infected help

    recently i went to get a touch up on my tattoo i went home washed it and put a and d on it but it has a pimple on it and also it has a kind of stink smell on it. they say if there is no puss then its not infected and i don't want to keep bugging my artist. its a tiny pimple im not popping it but will it go away

    my biggest fear is that its infected cause of the strange smell.

    i am using a and d not sure why this is going on after getting touched up some of the ink is coming off too

    while I'm no expert but any "open wound" with a smell is infected. talk to a doctor!

    also I moved your thread. wrong section for sure...

    Pictures always help as we do have some people on the board who work in the medical field....their opinions are just that as this is the internet though they have more insight than I do.

    Oh yeah can you describe the smell? (I'm just messing around)

    If it stinks and you're worried, carry your ass in to the sawbones! Even a free clinic will give you some antibiotics in pill or salve form to clear it up.

    i understand that you are concerned about how your tattoo is healing but please do not ask for medical advice on the internet.

    are you washing the tattoo off before everytime you apply more a&d? it's pretty thick so if you are just layering and layering a&d on it and not washing it properly then you are more than likely clogging you pores, which is making your skin break out.
