    So a day ago my nose stud fell out while cleaning it and I couldnt put titanium stud back in as it is a corkscrew nose stud so i replaced it with a sterling silver one. It had been 4 weeks since my nose was pierced and i think it may be infected as there is the smallest amount of pus but what is worrying is a little raised bump which kind of looks like a small headless pimple and doesn't hurt, so what could it be?

    So i was wondering whether i should change my nose stud back to a titanium one because apparently sterling silver causes it to discolour or whether i should just leave it?

    If pus is coming out of it, do your best to keep it clean and then you might want to get it looked at just incase there is an infection.

    The problem isn't that it's silver. The problem is that it probably wasn't sterile.

    So would it be okay to let it heal with sterling silver because apparently it leaves a black mark?

    Why take the risk? As above, get it looked at.

    There’s no reason to agressivly force it through. Take a very hot shower and allow you pores to open a significant bit...hang out in there for at least 10 minuets! My nose stud fell out while I was sleeping and it was really scary because when I woke up in the middle of the night...I had no idea how long it had been out. I remember that the girl who pierced my nose saying to try this if the stud accidentally fell out. I was in the shower for a couple minutes then gentle pushed it through...didn’t hurt a bit...just naturally went back in! Good luck!
