Medical concerns: Always concern with piercer if you have any kind of health problem.
Avoid These Things:
Avoid piercing guns, as they are not good for nose piercing. Jewelry used using piercing guns are very tight which delays healing process. It also increases the chances of infection. Piercing guns may not be sterilized which can lead to Hepatitis C or HIV!.
Use of sterling silver jewelry will increase the healing time. Sometimes it stain the skin by leaving the black mark around the site which doesn’t go easily. Stainless steel should be used to nose piercing to get healed.
Do not use plastic jewelry in new piercing as it absorb body fluids which lead to infection. Plastic can be problem in healing as well.
Don’t Play with jewelry:
Do not play with the jewelry on new piercing also don’t change the jewelry too often. Changing the jewelry can effect inside of piercing and process of healing will start over again from zero.
Do not use alcohol:
Use of alcohol may slow down the process of healing of piercing. Avoid the alcohol completely.
- How long I have to wait to take jewelry out temporarily?
No piece of information. A few people’s piercings are extremely steady after the underlying three-month recuperating period, and some take any longer. There’s no real way to have the capacity to tell when you’re penetrating winds up plainly steady. Some never do!
- Will the piercing close up after I take out my nose ring?
Generally. Nobody can foresee how your body will react once you take out the jewelry, yet the gap will likely psychologist. You may end up with a little dimple, or it may be scarcely recognizable.
- What happens if I take out my nostril or septum jewelry before its recuperating?
It will recuperate close. Yes you read correct. Septum piercing can be quit for the day you take out the jewelry. I know this might be exceptionally evident to a few, yet not to others, as I get asked this decently routinely.
