    I've had mine done for about 2 years but I still have problems with one of them being sore every once in a while and sometimes getting infected... is that commom? I figured it could be my body rejecting the jewelry but it's just one of them not both.

    Well it's not unusal for the body to just reject one and not both, mine still flair up after a night of use and they are 3 years old. However, I'd say that you have a allergy to nickle and should change the jewelry to titanium and see if that makes a difference!

    i took one of mine out because it rejected.

    i have had no problems with the other.

    horrible quality pictures, but heres mine:



    you can see a chunk of the nipple skin missing from the bottom where it had become infected and eventually healed.

    Luckily I haven't had anything severe... it just get a lil bit and is pretty much gone in a day or two if i clean it out with dial, and i'm actually not sure what kinda metal my jewelry is... i was thinking it was stainless steal... usually i have to use that in my peircing anyway because anything else infects.

    Why must I be so

    I still think you should try titanium, SSS always has nickle in it.

    tricky when you force your body to either accept or reject foreign objects, it's totally a gamble. if i had nice perky tits i would have mine pierced and hope that they don't get infected

    1) It IS completely normal for one piercing to migrate or reject and another not to. But that's already been said.

    2) Nipple piercings take a LONG time to heal. Usually anywhere from 8 months to a few years.

    3) I really doubt it's actually infected.

    Like I said, nipples are known to take a long time to heal. I've known a couple of people with 5-10 year old piercings that still got irritated kind-of easily and occasionally "leaked". That white/yellow stuff that comes out does NOT mean it's infected. If it's really red, feels warm and/or throbs, or if the stuff coming out is bright/dark yellow or green, it's probably infected. The best thing to do is have a piercer (even if it isn't the same one you went to, if you can't get back to them) take a look at it. They'll either tell you what to do and/or recommend having it checked by a doctor. If it IS infected, doctors will probably give you antibiotics.
    NEVER take out an infected piercing. By closing the hole, you close infection inside and create and abcess that will have to be lanced if it can't drain on it's own. Even if the doctor says to take it out, DON'T.
    It's very uncommon, but problems with nipple piercings (especially in females) can lead to bigger complications, including mastitis. Again, this is very rare, but seeing a doctor can never hurt.

    I've had mine for 2½ years now. They settled well and were never easily irritated or anything. I consider them healed, but they can still get irritated and I still get the white/yellow stuff from time to time.

    And one more kinda side note (but good to know) - the white/yellow stuff is actually GOOD. I'ts basically plasma and white blood cells that your body sends toward the "injury" to help flush it out, keep it clean and heal it. Because if a piercing is leaking, at least the dirt/bacteria isn't just collecting inside.

    I guess I should kinda say sorry for making such long posts when I DO post here, but I figure if it's useful information, I should probably try to NOT leave much out even if it doesn't matter to the person in question, it might be handy information to random readers or the next person that's smart enough to search the forums before they ask the same question again.

    Yea.. it just does that time to time... I just wondered if it really was an infection... the start of an infection or what it was. I figured it might have been from them being played with or whatever durning sex. If I do have a problem it usually is fine in a few days.

    I have had mine for about a year and a half.

    One of mine rejected two monthes after the piercing. I haven't had any problems with the other nipple. It may get a little sore every once in a while, but no discharge or anything too uncomfortable.
  13. when i had mine in, i don't think it ever fully healed. my sking was pushing it out of my body ad right before i took it out, you could see the silver metal inder the thin layer of skin still covering it. I really loved it but it was going to get ripped out.
