I got my nostril pierced (again) two days ago, I say again because the first time it got infected and fell out and hurt too much to force it back in the fistula. (hole where the piercing was). now, my nostril is a bit swollen (at the bottom) and as I was cleaning it tonight I got a q-tip soaked in sea salt solution and put light pressure, pushing up the piercing from the inside of my nose so I could clean the outside crusties and such. Only, it hurt and I couldn't help but notice there was some blood and a small amount of white pus. I'm not sure if it's infected or if I'm allergic to the jewelry itself. Please help, id love to keep my nose piercing in this time!!
