I would continue taking care of it and wait for the swelling to go down and if it still looks wonky, go to your piercer and ask about it. Thanks a bunch for the reply, I appreciate it 🙂 Your piercing should never be in the areola, it should sit right at the base of the nipple.
Keeping this in view, what happens if you pierce your nipple wrong?
Potential risks include infections (or even breast abscess formation), nerve damage, bleeding, hematoma (a blood-filled cyst), allergic reactions, nipple cysts, and keloid scarring (raised, red scarring). Unfortunately, nipple piercing is also associated with hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection, and even HIV.
Herein, can swelling make nipple piercing look crooked?
There is minimal swelling immediately after the piercing, so if you were pleased with the placement, but your piercing looks crooked a few days after the piercing when swelling is at it’s worst, give the piercing several more days to heal before making a final determination on straightness.
Should I rotate my nipple piercing?
You don’t need to rotate or spin the barbell for any reason. If you have to touch the piercing for any reason make sure you are washing your hands with antibacterial hand soap beforehand. The goal is to make this piercing as stationary as possible during the healing period.
Even the most straight nipple peircings can look crooked based off of how hard they are, position of the breasts, or if a bra or shirt was pressed up against them.
Infections can happen well after you get your nipple or areola, the darker ring around the nipple, pierced. Like any other body piercing, unsterilized equipment can put you at risk for infection with blood-borne diseases like HIV, hepatitis B or C, or tetanus.
Do pierced nipples stay hard forever? “No, the nipple will not stay erect, but it will be more pronounced.”
A common side effect of nipple piercing is an infection. Some signs of an infection are very obvious. If pus is coming from the piercing, it is a clear sign that there is an infection. Other signs of infection are subtler.
Keloids are largely a genetic issue, so it’s a good idea to make sure that you aren’t prone to keloids before getting pierced. If you do develop a keloid, it will most likely need to be surgically removed; they might decrease in size, but they won’t go away on their own.
Turn the piercing: Rotate the piercing several times each day so that your earlobe does not swell around it. Ice: Ice helps decrease swelling and pain. Use an ice pack, or put crushed ice in a plastic bag. Cover it with a towel and place it on your earlobe for 15 to 20 minutes every hour or as directed.
If you don’t like it and don’t want it, yes. Piercings close up and heal very fast if you take them out shortly after being done. So if you don’t like it and want it to heal over, taking it out is fine.
Nipple piercing too close to surface? One of the biggest nipple piercing placement mistakes involves having the piercing too close to the surface instead of having it at the base of an erect nipple. The problem with this is that the piercing might cause the skin to be ripped out, especially if you wear bigger jewelry.
If you had just recently gotten pierced and your nipple jewelry was sitting a bit crooked, I’d tell you to chill. Sometimes swelling can affect the way your piercing looks… But it sounds like you’ve had these piercings for a couple of years, in which case they should be completely healed up.
A crooked piercing occurs when the hole is not placed directly through the earlobe. It may be higher at the front or back. Like uneven holes, crooked piercings are not dangerous, but may be unsightly. Remove the earring and allow the original piercing to heal completely before attempting to re-pierce it.
