Angry HELP ASAPplease!!!!! (septum piercing) - March 8th 2013, 02:50 AM

So iv always wanted my septum pierced right? And today I got my wish come true! But the girl that did the piercing did a really shitty job, one side it close to the front og my nose and the other side is farther back, not only that but one side is higher than the other! I got the piercing done at school durning lunch. My mom does not know about this and she never will I plan on not having her in my life so please dont even think about commenting that I should tell her. But my nose really hurts and I regret getting this piercing from her, I told her to keep the money when she asked if I wanted my money back.(it sas $10, $5 for the piercing and $5 for the ring if you are not able to get a ring) But like I said it really hurts and I want this thing out! But she told me that it will hurt really bad!! I dont know what to do! I did get the half circle ring so that I can hide it from my parents and family.

Your gonna need to take it out quite soon. It's an infection at this point. Well..... damn. Most pain free way is going to the doctor but you might need parents.
Gotta pull the stake out of the heart to recover.

What lies ahead is unknown. However, in some times, I've sighted several smooth pavements. I myself am the mender of roads, and it is with these we work on.

Go to the store and buy some non-iodized salt. Once you get it mix some in with some lukewarm water in a cup and soak your nose in it. I've had a lot of piercings and this is how you take care of them. Since it is positioned badly perhaps you should take it out if you think it looks bad. But regardless weather you keep it or not keep soaking it twice a day for a few weeks. If the puss turns green and smells badly then its infected and you should consider seeing a doctor. But normal clear puss and crusty stuff is normal.

"Setting boundaries is not a more sophisticated way of manipulation - although some people will say they are setting boundaries, when in fact they are attempting to manipulate. The difference between setting a boundary in a healthy way and manipulating is: when we set a boundary we let go of the outcome."

It shouldn't be really painful this long after having it done. Since it wasn't done professionally, it wasn't sterile which means you are at risk of infection. If it isn't placed correctly, then you may as well take it out and get it redone at a piercing shop when you are old enough.
Plus, it's not good to flip the ring up and down a lot when healing, so you're better off getting it done once you move out anyway.

And here you are living, despite it all.
