I had my nosed pierced about 10-12 weeks ago and after 2wks the stud accidentally got knocked out over a holiday weekend so I inserted a nose ring that I had bought for after healing. It looked fine/felt fine but then several weeks later after I wore a white gold stud, the skin around the piercing was puffy and a little red and irritated. Not infected so I just kept dealing with it. We were traveling last weekend and it got lost so I went approximately 2 days w/o a stud and when I returned home it was pretty closed up. I decided to let it close all the way and repierce. Anyone know how long I should wait to do that or has anyone else had problems with them being puffy and irritated?
