I have my micro dermal on my upper cheek bone, very close to my eye. I have had it for a little over a month. In the beginning I guess you can say i had the normal reactions, but that stopped for a couple of weeks. Now I am having major problems. It has become swollen, red, and a bit bruised. I have no idea as to what is going on with it. I have convinced myself that it is not infection due to how often I clean it. But you never know. So I guess my question is what is going on? Is it rejection? If so, what do I do about it? Or if infection do is there anyway of reversing it? HELP ME PLEASE. I am so clueless and very paranoid.

Most of the questioned we get here on ASK are similar to this one. Does my piercing look ok? Is it crooked? Is it infected?

Honestly I would love to help you, but Im just a man on the internet 100s of miles away and only a small picture to go from.

The best piece of advice I can give you is go to your piercer. a visual inspection along with a sit down conversation is required to diagnose something like this. I wish you the best of luck.

  2. Did you snag it on something? It could have occurred while you were sleeping. To prevent snagging while sleeping a small band aid over the top will help. Aaaannnd considering that they are only a month old they are more susceptible to tearing than a healed piercing. But yes go to your piercer for a check up! Good luck.

  3. i have several, and although i have 4 completely, healed, i have had some look like yours. it’s rejection i’m afraid. you must have snagged it. i have found you have to be extremely careful for at least 3 to 4 months. after about 6 months you can knock them pretty bad, and they will be ok. the problem is you can’t see how healed they are

  4. My piercer told me not to over-clean when I had my eyebrow pierced, she said twice a day was enough unless I was at work where I am exposed to dirty and dusty conditions, she said when I get up, at lunch and when I got home was enough as over-cleaning can cause irritation and rejection just as much as not cleaning, so it may be just irritated from over cleaning, best go speak to your piercer.
