Are nose piercings supposed to hurt after 4-5days?

by Moriah

I just got my nosed pierced 4 days ago and its just starting to hurt quite a lot around the actually piercing and inside my nose. I just want to know if it is infected or just normal. It is feeling quite tender and sensitive and a little bit red. I clean it twice a day with saline solution. What should I do?

Pain after piercing? NEW
by: Megan

Honestly, I have had my nose ring for over a year and it's still sensitive when changing studs. It has something to do with the cartilidge

Don't worry

Mine was pierced a week ago and I have no problems now. It Will see be tender and a little bit sore. If you are still worried contact your piercer. Just remember to keep cleaning it.
