Ask 4 it at your pharmacy. ...Read more

Infection?: It is possible that the nose ring has caused an infection, or rather the opening of the skin to respiratory bacteria has caused it. It could possibly be chronic irritation from movement of the ring which is creating a fibroma (a chronic irritation causing excess tissue to be formed). I know it is a popular cosmetic look for youth, but really it is unwise for a number of reasons. ...Read more
