So I really want to get my nose pieced. I’m thinking of just coming with my friend cuz my mom doesn’t want to come with me. I’m 16 years old, do I need a parent worth me, and do I need to bring anything (like an ID) with me? And how much would it cost?
Please leave a responds back.

so despite what the website says you still think I’d see the best results without usin any sort of
soak or saline solution? I’ve been applying h2ocean 3 times a day and rinsing it with a little bit of dial soap and hot water and soaking it in that for 3 minutes once a day. it hasn’t really gone away, only slightly. I just want this pesky thing gone!

Please stop using iodized salt. The red bump is not a keloid. Here is a great link that explains how to take care of those red bumps that can sometimes occur on a nostril piercing. They are very common and can take a few weeks to completely go away. I have found that the best solution is to just leave it be. They are caused from irritation and the more you try and heal it, the more you irritate it and the longer it seems to last. I wish there was something better I could recommend that would make it go away faster, but time seems to be the best treatment in this case.

ia keloid has formed righhhhht next to my nose piercing and i haven’t soaked it with saline solution yet but i have been soaking it with warm water and iodized salt. i’ve heard from a lot of people that tea tree oil can be effective, is that a bad idea? should i just simply leave it alone or try saline solution?

Hi, I’m 14 and I was wondering would I be aloud to get a nostril piercing if I accompanied by an adult? And do you do 3rd lobe piercings?

The red bumps that commonly occur after a nose piercing go away with time. They are caused by irritation from changing jewelry too soon, banging your piercing, snagging it with a towel, over cleaning and drying it up, over touching it…. etc. Different methods work for different people. Soaking it in warm saline solution daily seems to be the best method. We do not recommend any type of alcohol, bactine, hydrogen peroxide or any other antiseptic. The piercing is not infected, it is irritated. The bump is usually prolonged by people who over clean the piercing causing it to dry out and become more irritated. I have found the best course of action is just leaving it alone, which seems to be the hardest course of action in most cases. They can take up to a month to go away, but they will go away over time.
