Improving the Look of Your Piercing

It is likely that you have developed a keloid or hypertrophic scar.  These scars are often thickened, redder and can be itchy. There are options to improve scars including steroid injections, laser, and revisional surgery in some cases. My recommendation would be to seek advice from your Plastic Surgeon. Best of luck!
