isnt and im worried this isn't normal ?!
You may have very sensitive skin some people can be allergic to stainless stee. This could have occured from other piercing that were not left in the entire 6 weeks. Most stainless still pircing should be kept in for six weeks before remove in doing so your body builds up a tolerance to stainless a forgien object. So if you had your ears pirced as a child and took them out too soon you may have caused yourself to have a sensitivity to steel. And with all that it will be fine keep it clean and don't play with and most of all leave it in!
People can have different reactions to a piercing, which is why you need to keep an eye on it. As lilibees says, you could be allergic to the metal.
I found with my nose piercing in particular that it would get red and sore if I touched or played with it too much. If you're really worried:
- put a little salt into some warm water,
- take a cotton bud
- clean around the piercing slowly and thoroughly.
Do this twice a day for a few days and see if it helps. This helps clear the piercing out and prevent infection from setting in
Everyone heals differently. I highly doubt infection or irritation just yet. Remember you jsut got the piercing. It's bound to be some sort of red, swollen, and painful.
