    Default Nostril piercing question

    I've had my nostril pierced for a year and a bit, and every few months I get a little spot thing that comes up joined onto the hole. It's like a blister, when it pops it bleeds quite a lot and sometimes there's a little bit of pus.. The actual piercing isn't infected though. Why does it come up? And what can I do to stop it, because it looks terrible and always makes my piercing a bit sore.

    Thanks x

    What kind of jewellery have you got in there at the moment, do you know what it's made of? i.e. surgical steel, titanium etc

    Planned: Some more ear stuff and hopefully a microdermal or two once I know where I want to put them!

    Surgical steel screw stud, but I'm thinking of changing to titanium because my navel piercing seems to like titanium better. Would the material or style have something to do with it?

    Possibly, surgical steel does contain a very small amount of nickel so if you're quite sensitive to it you could have a reaction. Give the titanium a go and see how you get on.

    Avoid getting harsh soaps and things like that near it too in case that's making it flare up too
