There is something wrong with my bellybutton piercing? (photo)

I got my bellybutton pierced last year and it rejected because the last pierced it the wrong way I later found out. And I just got it repierced this summer and it was fine until hockey season and now my piercing is fine but my scar from the first time looks really bad

Proper wound care and scar expertise will reduce the likelihood of further scarring. I would recommend a consult with a plastic surgeon.
