Q:Hi there. I just wanted to say something that's on my mind. If something goes wrong, your piercing gets infected, you have a nasty blowout, whatever the problem may be, sometimes seeing your piercer isn't enough. You can follow all their advice (which is definitely helpful) but sometimes it just doesn't cut it. Don't be embarrassed to go see your doctor. They WILL help. Some of the photos on here are terrifying. Don't let your piercing get to that point. Stay safe. :)
If your piercing is infected or you even THINK it’s infected, you need to just skip the “go to your piercer” and/or “ask people from the internet” step and GO. TO. YOUR. DOCTOR. RIGHT. AWAY. That can get out of hand easily.
Also note, no matter how many times your doctor/parent say to take out the jewelry, you need to wait until you’re on antibiotics. Unless perhaps if it’s starting to embed, which is a whole other problem you should be seeing a doctor/going to the ER for anyway.
