hypergranulation tissue

I developed this within the past month after my naval piercing healed. I thought the piercing felt too tight, but ignored it. After much researching I found that what I have had growing on the bottom hole is hypergranulation tissue. It looks raw and pusses, mostly yellow sticky stuff. What can I do myself to stop it from growing any more and to save my piercing? I've read that I can use silver nitrate on it which would freeze it off, but 1) I don't have health insurance to double check with my dr and 2) I'm afraid to do this myself. I've been using bacterial ointment and rubbing alcohol on it, opposed to just using salt water as I had been doing.
