Hit by an impossible smell and freaked out when you realized it is coming from you?
It is normal…
You are the only one who can smell it. ...If that is a comfort in any way…
Most septum pierced people experience that smell at one time or another, Or at least enjoyed it in their healing process.
Being known as “septum funk” or “septum stench” that smell is very common with other body piercings as well. Taking them out for cleaning or changing, you can notice that they’d smell a little something too.
The fact that the nose and septum piercing are stuck in your nose, obviously makes it more distinctive and probably more bothersome.
Don’t mistake that excretion for pus, it is sebum which is there to protect your skin, keep it moisturized and healthy.
A mixture of dead skin cells, probably boogers as well, even old soap is what gives it the rotten odor.
