In brief: Body piercing

Piercing, a decorative procedure, involves placing a metal foreign body through the skin, and in doing such, can cause a variety of problems.
First, the entrance into the skin can serve as a portal for bacteria, and an infection can develop. The metal can also cause an allergy, in some people, with a rash and itching. In the vulva, the piercing be rubbed and pulled out, more infection and scar.
