Navel Piercing Watch
I had mine pierced last august, and it was fine, then last week it got red and sore, but i left the bar in anyway. Then i was at the gym and i lost the bar, by the time i got a new one (the next day) it had completely closed up and healed over!I must have some freaky skin! What should i do, will i have t get it repierced even though the inside is probably still open?
They also said it may be because it was pierced with surgical steel instead of titanium
And you could try taking zinc supplements and rubbing vitamin E cream onto the skin where the piercing was (when it's totally healed over) to reduce scarring
Ow. You could try pushing it back through. But I suggest waiting six months, leaving it to heal, then getting it repierced.
And pushing it back through is a bad idea.
someone else said that its illegal to pierce with surgical steel but i think thats wat most people end up getting pierced with.... i think my tongue got pierced with surgical steel and i changed it to titanium as soon as i could cz id heard stuff about nickel or watever thats in it reacting or something? hmm all a bit confusing.
I'd suggest a more reputable piercer, for sure.
they're piercing with non reccommended surgical steel over titanium, they are at fault.
then yeah, go to a different piercers if they used surgical steel.
HIYA my piercing gone a bit sore and was kinda bleeding got it done 3 mths ago any advice?
Do salt soaks twice a day, and treat it as if it were new. Do not pick any scabs if they form. If you can see a red line between both holes, or if it is very red and sore then go and see your piercer. Go and see them if the bleeding continues too.
If you have a ring, consider getting it changed to a bar if it pushed to one side when you sit down.
