...I just got my nose pierced yesterday!! Anyway, I have read and re-read the aftercare sheet I was given, and I know keep it clean, don't touch it, don't take the jewlery out, blah, blah, blah... but what about the stuff not on the sheet?? Like is it normal to be more tender today, than when it was actually pierced yesterday? It is more swollen today too, and very slightly pink, is that normal? I'm sure some swelling is to be expected, since there was a piece of metal forced through there. haha. I was told 3 weeks before I could change the jewlery, but that seems awfully quick to me. Any thoughts? Thanks everyone!!
