Can You Get A Nose Piercing If You Have Seasonal Allergies?
We get asked this question all the time: Should I even get a nose piercing if I have seasonal allergies? you’re wiping your nose, is it even gonna heal?
Well, the simple answer is yes, but it’s all about the timing.
You really want to wait till those allergies are pretty much over with and find the best season to where you can heal up that nose piercing.
Nostrils, high nostrils, and septums don’t take that terribly long to heal up. So, the key here is to find the right window of time to heal up your piercing so it can be ready to go for the next allergy season.
Nose Piercing And Seasonal Allergies Tips
Couple little tips and tricks for you.
Now, during the allergy season, your nose might get a little irritated, and there are ways to keep that irritation down.
Wearing A Ring In Your Nostril
Number one is if you’re wearing a ring in your nostril, sometimes change it into a stud so there’s not as much movement. It will help keep the redness away from your nostril piercing and also avoid those piercing bumps.
Get A Slightly Shorter Post
Now, another thing to keep in mind is sometimes when we do the initial piercing, we’re going to put an oversized post in there.
So, if the jewelry is way too long and you’re trying to blow your nose and it’s pinching or hurting the inside, sometimes getting a slightly shorter post can actually help quite a bit.
And vice versa, if you’ve already downsized and you have a short tight piece of jewelry in there and you’re blowing your nose and it starts swelling up and the gem’s getting sucked in there, put the longer piece back in there.
Seasonal allergies affect everyone differently, so you need to be careful and be aware of how your body’s reacting to them.
Get Your Jewelry Clean
The next subject we’re going to talk about here is the crusties or boogers.
Now, the thing is when you’re blowing your nose, there’s going to be an excess of boogers basically stuck to your jewelry. Sometimes it’s going to really build up, sometimes it doesn’t.
Now, if you have some sort of a nostril screw in there, a nostril L or more surface on the inside where boogers are sticking to it, you need to get them off. They can keep building up and the more they build up, the more surface area they create for more boogers to get onto.
Don’t let it get to that point. Use that wound wash spray, let it soak, and wipe them off with a paper towel if you need to. Do this a couple of times, get your jewelry clean.
