What should I do if my nose piercing still hurts?

I got it pierced 3 weeks ago and it is still painful.

If this happends, it might be the sign of an infection and i would make sure to call my doctor for a rendez-vous ASAP, otherwise the situation may get worse by itself.

This is not Medical Advice: A couple causes could be that your piercing might be in the the cartlidge area of your nose. Another , that it is a possible infection. Talk to your MD.

If it still hurts, then it is not healing properly. You may have an infection; they are pretty common on nose piercings. If it is swollen, red, or warm to the touch, you definitely have an infection. You should have a doctor look at it right away.

Rinse it often with warm, iodine free salt water. The salt water should be about the same strength as the ocean, to salty and it will dry out mucus membranes.

piercings take a few MONTHS to heal. rinse it with a salt water solution, put the salt water in a dixie cup and blow bubbles into it with your nose to clean it

Three weeks is no where near enough time for your nose to heal. If it still hurts after several months, around nine, then I would talk to your piercer. Good luck!
