View Full Version : can this happen with a nose piercing?

If I had my nose pierced with a small stud, can the stud fall into the pierced hole, thus making the hole bigger?

I am talking about the outside part that you can see the stud and it falls in, almost like the skin would grow over it, pushing the earring to the inside.

No it shouldn't fall in because your hole more than likely will be the same size as the earring they first pierce your nose with.

My daughter had her ears peirced a few yrs. ago and while she was sleeping, putting pressure on her earlobe, the back of the earring got pushed into the hole somehow and got all infected. So, I think if you put pressure on it like she had, it can happen.

Well I actually *have* my nose pierced and I've never had the problem like you're worried about. It's not the size of the actual stud that dictates the size of the hole, but the size of the post of the stud (if that makes any sense!).
