    Default Septum healing time

    I'm curious what everyone's personal healing times were for their septum piercings. I've seen people say 4-6 weeks and some say 6-8 months.

    It's gonna be somewhere between the 2 really. Initial healing is around 3 months, some feel it's healed earlier some longer. Id say past 6 months is long but not unheard of.

    I had mine done at the end of February and it's felt fully healed for a while now. A lot quicker than I thought considering the initial pain!
    Current:
    8mm lobe, 1.2mm lobes x4, helix x3, rook x3, inverse navel, tragus, anti-tragus, conch, diagonal nipples x2, septum, double nostrils.

    Retired: Forward helix x2, helix, standard navel, Madison MD x3

    4-6 weeks is not really fully healed. Just remember that wound heal outside in, so while it may seem healed it may need longer for the inner part to be completely healed. It's not a long healing piercing though (of course times vary person-to-person). 3-6 months on average.
    Current Piercings:
    Right Ear: 00g lobe (9mm), 14g daith
    Left Ear: 00g (9mm) lobe, 14g conch
    Other: 18g right nostril, 14g/12g septum, 12g horizontal nipples

    Retired:
    R.I.P: navel

    Mine was the same, it felt healed really fast! Such a trouble-free piercing for me ^_^

    I'd say four months. That's when, for me, the pain/tenderness was basically gone. 6-8 months sounds wrong to me. That's more likely for cartilage piercings and your septum technically *shouldn't* go through cartilage. I've never heard 4-6 weeks. that's way too soon.

    My piercer said healing time is 6-8 weeks. That is on the short side, but I can believe it. I've only had mine done for 2 weeks and it's healing really fast. My nose is still a little sore when you press on the tip of it, but the jewelry feels great and it isn't crusting much at all. Super easy piercing!

    If it's pierced correctly it would take 6-8 weeks for you to be able to change the jewelry but the inside of the piercing (forgot what its called lol) will take about 4-5 months to fully heal

    A good indication my piercer was bad--he said I could change the jewelry in 20 days.
