FAQ: Can I remove the jewelry, even for a little while? Do   not   remove   your   jewelry   until   your   piercing   is   completely   healed. Even   then,   the   piercing   may   close   very   quickly.   If   you   absolutely   need to   remove   the   jewelry   for   a   short   time   (such   as   for   surgery)   put   it   back as    soon    as    possible.    You    may    be    able    to    get    a    temporary    nylon retainer for some piercings. How can I tell if I have an infection, and what should I do? The   most   obvious   sign   of   infection   is   pus   coming   from   the   piercing.   If the   pus   is   white   the   infection   is   very   minor   –   continue   with   the   normal cleansing   process.   If   the   pus   is   yellow   or   green   the   infection   is   more serious   and   you   should   come   in   and   see   us.   We   will   advise   you   of what   to   do   at   that   point.   Whatever   the   case   –do   not   remove   the   jewelry as the piercing may close around the infection resulting in an abscess. What is this red bump around my piercing? A   small   ridge   or   bump   of   scar   tissue   looking   a   bit   like   a   pimple   or   small infection   is   probably   a   keloid.   Whatever   you   do,   do   not   pick   at   them   as this   can   make   them   bigger.   There   are   a   few   things   you   can   try   to reduce   them.   You   can   crush   up   aspirin   and   put   it   directly   on   the   keloid or   the   gauge   of   jewelry   can   be   reduced.   Generally   a   keloid   appears because   of   irritation,   so   your   goal   is   to   remove   that   irritation.   Catching keloids early is important to stop them.
