Hello,

I have had a Christina piercing for four weeks on Thursday. I was just wondering if it is infected? It looks a lot less worse then it does in the picture it’s just that every now and again I’ll see spots of some sort of liquid of where the piercing has been. It’s not painful, and it isn’t hot to touch.

I use saline easypiercing solution twice a day.

I would say its not infection as it would present in a totally different way, however it does appear that the top is quite angry and might be moving forwards.

Redness (especially with PTFE) is very common in a surface piercing. I would suggest, if you are worried about rejection, to get it changed to an internally threaded titanium ā€œLā€ bar right away. Most good studios will have them, or can make/order them in for you.

Metal is always better in surface work as it puts much less pressure on the entrance and exit of the piercing and can be custom made to suit your anatomy perfectly. They also reduce the chance of ends coming off or the bar bending in a funny shape.

Make sure you are also doing WARM saline soaks, to promote more blood circulation and clean the crusties off without picking at them.
