How do I know if my piercing is healed?

If your piercing is healed, you will notice that the initial swelling and discomfort have gone away. Your nose piercing should also no longer hurt when you move it or touch it. Crusty discharge may continue to appear for a bit longer as it is a sign of healthy tissue but will eventually clear. You should also notice that the edges of your piercing holes look smooth and natural.

After the initial healing stage, the process of platelet hemostasis takes place in a healing piercing. Platelets, which are blood cells, adhere together to create a clot, forming a protective barrier against bacteria and preventing excessive bleeding. Following this, the piercing enters the remodeling phase where significant changes occur.

During this phase, the fresh and delicate piercing gradually transforms into a robust piercing surrounded by fully functional normal tissue. As this progression unfolds, you may start to notice that the piercing begins to feel as though it has been part of your body for years. It should feel comfortable to touch and may even seem uneventful or routine. It is essential, however, to be cautious and not overexert this process by applying excessive force or pressure onto the piercing.

After a piercing heals, it is important to keep it clean. We recommend that you use a sterile saline solution to cleanse your piercing at least 3-4 times a day. This can be purchased at your local piercer or you can make your saline solution with salt and warm water. Be sure to not use hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, or other harsh chemicals on your piercing as these will damage the skin cells and delay healing. You should also avoid sexual activity until your piercing is completely healed, this can prevent infection and reduce the chance of contracting STIs.

What should I do if my piercing hurts?

Experiencing discomfort or a prickly sensation after getting a new piercing is common, as is the secretion of a clear, pale yellow substance that hardens into crusts around the jewelry. Such symptoms are typically part of the body’s normal healing process. To alleviate itching, regularly cleanse the piercing with a saline solution specifically designed for ear care, which you can find pre-made at stores—doing this at least twice daily is beneficial. Be alert to the fact that itching could indicate the onset of an infection. To lower the risk of infection, it’s advisable to avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen and naproxen.

While browsing the eclectic array of produce and charming home goods at your local farmer’s market, your stylish butterfly nose ring is sure to make a fashion statement that sets you apart from the rest. The unique flair of your nose jewelry not only reflects your individuality but is also likely to draw admiration and compliments from others in the market.

You’re on a date with your crush and want to give him or her a good impression. A butterfly nose ring hoop is a perfect accessory to wear on a first date, as it will make you look cute and flirty. Plus, your piercing will catch the attention of your crush, which is sure to make him or her notice you!

You may wear the butterfly nose ring hoop to the gym or go hiking, but you should refrain from exercising until your piercing is healed. Exercise can cause friction and irritation to the piercing, which can lead to infection. If exercise is unavoidable, always wear light clothing and clean the piercing after exercise.

What should I do if my piercing gets infected?

Piercing infections can occur within a few days to a month after piercing. It is common for the infection to go away with normal care. However, if you notice any signs of infection, such as fever, chills, excessive swelling or redness around the piercing, pus from the piercing hole, swollen lymph nodes, or loss of sensation in the affected area, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Infections can be prevented by not touching the piercing unless you are cleaning it, says Lacy. If you must touch it, she suggests washing your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap before doing so. She also recommends soaking the area in a saline solution two to three times per day (a saltwater rinse can be made by adding one teaspoon of salt to a cup of water).

Don’t remove your nose ring, as this can spread bacteria and lead to an even more serious infection. It’s best to wait until you have seen your piercer or doctor, who can prescribe the appropriate medication.

Whether you’re out to lunch with friends or shopping for produce and jewelry at the local farmers market, your butterfly nose ring will stand out from the crowd. You can even wear it to a funeral if you want, as long as you avoid wearing black and respect the wishes of the grieving family. A beautiful butterfly bracelet can make you feel elegant and feminine on such occasions while allowing you to show your support for the community. Don’t forget to bring a hat or scarf to cover and keep warm. This will also help keep the piercing safe from cold air. Additionally, it is easier to put on and take off a swimsuit when wearing a wetsuit.

What should I do if my piercing gets swollen?

It’s the weekend, and you want to go to your local farmer’s market to pick up some fresh produce and knick-knacks for your home. You know that the farmers are working hard to provide you with these fresh foods, so you want to show your appreciation by wearing a cute butterfly nose ring as you walk through the market.

Your new nose piercing looks amazing, but it’s becoming red and bloated. You’re concerned that it’s contaminated, but you don’t want to visit the doctor just yet. There are a few things you may do at home to cure your piercing and prevent swelling while it heals.

Soak a cotton ball in distilled water and apply it to the piercing site. Gently massage the area dry with a clean tissue or paper towel, then apply a small amount of an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment like Neosporin. Repeat this method several times every day for three days to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria.

A butterfly nose ring is a perfect accessory to wear while you’re out and about on a date with your crush. It’ll make you look cute and flirty, and it will catch their attention!

A butterfly nose ring is also a good choice to wear while running a race, playing a sport, or competing in a competition. They’re lightweight and easy to keep on, and they won’t catch on anything while you’re moving quickly. Plus, they’ll keep your nose cool and dry in the hot and humid summer weather. This makes them a great choice for marathons and other competitive events!

What should I do if my piercing gets irritated?

If your piercing develops an irritation bump, don’t panic. These are common and will go away with proper care.

Irritation bumps are not an infection; instead, they result from an accumulation of displaced tissue due to an irritant. Typically, they develop from a combination of factors such as touching, picking, hitting, or snagging the area, sleeping on it, using ill-fitting jewelry, excessive cleaning with harsh cleansers, premature or frequent jewelry removal, and exposure to chemical irritants like hair products, household cleaners, or dusty work environments. Distinguishing irritation bumps from keloid scars can be challenging, but the key difference is that the bump usually resolves on its own over time.

It is important to treat an irritation bump as though it were a new piercing – clean it 2-3 times a day with sterile saline wound wash, avoid touching it outside of cleaning, and be sure not to introduce any other irritants. If the irritation does not go away after a few days please come in to see us, we can ask questions, assess the area, and determine if a change in your aftercare routine is needed.

A cold compress can help relieve irritation as well – simply wrap a commercial cold pack in a hand towel or washcloth and press against the irritated area for 10 minutes. Repeat this as needed. Also, gently swab the area with a cotton bud/q-tip to remove any dried exudate that may be present. Lastly, avoid the temptation to pick at the irritated area – it will only prolong the healing process.
