Itching is a normal part of wound healing. To understand the cause of the itch, you need to understand how a wound—even a wound closed with stitches—rebuilds up.
An infected ear piercing can be red, swollen, sore, warm, itchy, or tender. Sometimes the piercing will ooze blood or white, yellow, or greenish pus. A new piercing is an open wound that may take several weeks to fully heal.
What is normal for a new piercing? In the first few weeks a new piercing can: be sensitive, itchy and the area can look slightly red on white skin or a little darker than usual on dark skin.
If a red, itchy rash appears or the piercing feels sore for a long time, it could be an allergy. If jewelry causes an allergic reaction, it should be replaced with hypoallergenic jewelry that does not react with the body.
A piercing is infected when it is red, swollen, bleeding, and producing pus. To treat it at home, use topical antibiotics and a saline solution and don’t remove the piercing. Consult a doctor if the piercing gets worse as it can result in scarring or serious infection.
You should not take out new piercings at night either, as the holes can close. In this case, you will have to wait a few more weeks for the skin to heal before you can get the area pierced again. You should also avoid twisting and playing with the jewelry to reduce the risk of irritation and infection.
Yes, because it turns heads – AKA makes you look slimmer. It’s simple science: drawing attention to the piercing automatically flattens your tummy.
It is normal for the area to feel sore a few days after the piercing. Contact your piercer or doctor if you notice any unusual symptoms or symptoms that appear after the first few days.
Summary. As long as you’ve waited the recommended three to 12 months and used your aftercare properly, you should be able to change your belly ring without any problems.
