Nose piercing is stuck!!!

they placed a sorta wiry nosering & twisted that & i'm baffled cause it's stuck!. do i see my doc, or my piercer, & have them cut that wire, or should i find some reallypetite tinsnips (kidding) or....
guys, i'm likely starting cooking school again soon, & they disallow piercings.
i'm entering panic mode. i'm just gonna get a retainer fer my piercing to stay open when i get itout!!!
if you've a similar piercing, please respond!!!
thanks, luvs

Sorry I can't help except to say maybe try the piercer first then the doc. I wouldn't try anything myself. There would be too big a chance of infection or tearing if it doesn't go well. Good Luck! Hope you get things figured out!

How old is the piercing? It is common for new ones to "seize", but will loosen up in the shower, or if soaked down with mouth wash.

cause i was not a current student at school & wasn't aware that i'd be returning so soon. a buncha those guys at school just used retainers fer thier piercings, anyway. i didn't expect them to twist my piercing so i couldn't remove/retain it!!!

mouthwash is good for cleaning piercings because it is ok for "internal usage"...ask your guy(or gal)what kinda metal it is, some are absorbed by the body, that is why a lot of rods/gauges/posts/plugs are nobium.

Could be too that you have cooled down, and "tightened up", sounds silly, but it is true. Nose piercings are funny, and act up more then others....I had my septum done a little over a decade ago, took it out after a year, but to this day, I get a little pimple there about every 8months and it brings a tear to my eye just to rub my nose. As for the wall, or side, it tends to heal very quickly! So, your body might be trying to heal round it...

Well, don't pick you nose(sorry, had to be said, lol)! if you are really skinny too, your body might fight it like an infection from what have heard. there are a great deal of variables that go into getting pierced....

If it is a p.i.t.a. now, just get rid of it, no sense in dragging it out, no pun intended.
