Irritation Problem

by Sarah
(PA)

I got my nose pierced about 5 1/2 weeks ago. I changed the jewelry and put in a hoop. On the inside of my nose, the stud made scabbing that formed so that a hoop cannot set correctly. So when I put the hoop in it has pushed to the side and has irritated the scab. The inside of my nose is fine now, but the outside of my nose is red and irritated. I'm not sure if its the jewelry or what. But it is very tender and irritated. I have been cleaning it regularly, and it has been about a day now. Should I wait a little longer to see if it will heal. And if I should take the hoop out, should I put the stud back in, it will hurt a lot I think but what should I do so I don't get a bad infection from it?
