The question is that since I know a lot of you on here are pierced (because I got just a lovely response last time, thank you!) have you ever dealt with this? I know it can happen all over the body, not just the nose. I just feel SO ugly, it sucks. I used the H2Ocean spray they gave me at the tattoo parlor, I've been doing sea salt soaks and using emu oil as well. Just yesterday, my doctor advised me to do aspirin pastes where I crush aspirin and mix it with water to make a paste that goes over the piercing. That way it gets medicated. So I am taking care of it. My body doesn't seem to like the emu oil, It makes the scar all crusty, so I stopped using that for a while to see if it makes a difference.
But any help anyone could give, that would be WONDERFUL!!! I hate this - I just feel so ugly and stupid because I let it get yanked on. And the guys at the tattoo parlor are so nice. They say that happens a lot and not to feel bad, but I do. Oh, and please bear in mind, it's NOT infected. If it was, those guys would have had me see a doctor right away, they're very good that way. Plus, there is zero pain, except if I rotate it, which I'm not supposed to anyway. My sister keeps telling me not to touch it, which I feel is a total downfall on my part because I'm always touching piercings and my face in general. Also, I'm going to be getting a titanium screw next week cuz my skin is super sensitive and I was advised that is excellent for sensitive skin.
