Accordingly, what do you do if your nose piercing gets bigger?
Don’t put in a bigger gauge. I’d recommend gradually putting in smaller jewelry until your nose closes around it (if it does at all, depends on the person), then keep changing it smaller. Adjust your expectations for nostril piercings – you will have to finick with it sometimes.
Beside this, can you switch out nose rings?
Wait at least six months. Nostril piercings are not very forgiving if you try to change the jewelry too soon. Not waiting long enough could result in irritation, a tear to the piercing channel, scarring, an increased risk of infection, or difficulty reinserting the jewelry.

Nasal piercings are delicate and can close quickly if they‘re not completely healed when you remove the original jewelry. Changing a nostril or septum ring too soon also can cause infection, swelling, bleeding and redness at the piercing site.
If your nose piercing is less than or at least 6 months old, it will begin to get smaller/close up within a day or two. Especially the inner side of your nose piercing hole turns smaller very quickly.
Most piercers recommend not to take off your nose ring during the healing period. In most cases, you shouldn’t change the jewelry for at least two months.
