... the ring never got infected. when I got a job that required a stud, it always got torn out in the middle of the night or on my shirts or whatever. It always got infected from being torn open over and over. ... (10 replies)
... Surgical grade stainless steel or titanium is best. Silver is not great, especially with a new piercing as it can discolor the healing skin. Most, but not all people can tolerate gold, but if it has nickle in it, it can provoke allergic reactions. ... (10 replies)

... its not that gross looking, the piercing covered it.. ... (10 replies)
... I had my nose piereced many years ago while I was travelling along the western seacoast in India. ... (10 replies)
... nother one and then it got infected. It cleared up though really quickly after using Rubbing Alcohol but I think I have like a permanent bump on the inside of my nose because of it, much like one you would get from your ears being pierced after an infection. Oh well, what can you do. ... (10 replies)
... Like DGGO1223 said, DO NOT use alcohol on piercings, SUCH a bad idea. You'll just dry it out. Don't use neosporin either, you'll clog up the hole leading to more problems. Soak the piercing with a sea salt solution (sea salt and warm water) twice a day is good, as is tea tree oil every once in awhile. (10 replies)
... le better. I am still using the antibiotic soap but only in the shower. I think the problem was that I was cleaning it WAY too much and it actually irritated the piercing and kept it from healing itself. I got some soap with Vitamin E in it so it doesnt dry it out. If the infection comes back yet again I think I will go see my Dr. ... (10 replies)
... in each nostril and 1 in my septum and they are all great. The first one I got pierced in my left nostril when I was 15 and that was the only one that would get infected off and on just because I was very lazy back then and didn't clean it properly like I should have. ... (14 replies)
... nose studs, but the screw kinds were very uncomfortable for me and I could feel it inside my nose, the L shaped one would always rotate and be sticking out of my nose and showing, so I use a straight stud that has a knob at the end that keeps it from falling out. ... (5 replies)
... That is what I have been doin- sea salt and tea tree oil...and it has gone down and the bump has almost gone away! Ive found that if I clean it TOO MUCH it just makes it worse so I actually do the soaks maybe just once every 2 or 3 days and wash it in the shower with antibacterial soap. I think my problem earlier was I waa cleaning it way to much and irritating it. I have a... (10 replies)
... Yeah, you might want to try changing it with a different type of metal. Be careful though.. I got a nasty infection and I tried changing it and within a few seconds of switching the jewelry the inside layer of skin closed up! Keep using that antibacterial soap... I use one with a moisturizer in it and it doesn't dry my skin. I'm really really doubtful of that infection... (10 replies)
... you may have an allergy to the metal-I can't wear gold anymore, but Sterling Silver is okay (unless the gold is treated). Also, cleanse the ring hole with hydrogen peroxide and be sure to rinse it with water afterwards. You can soak the ring in the peroxide as well. You can also get some neosporin and apply it to the ring hole as well, maybe leave on overnight. Hope some... (10 replies)
... My daughter had her ears peirced a few yrs. ago and while she was sleeping, putting pressure on her earlobe, the back of the earring got pushed into the hole somehow and got all infected. So, I think if you put pressure on it like she had, it can happen. (3 replies)
