    my piercing is itching

    <P mce_keep="true">I just got my navel repierced and I was wondering if it's supposed to itch. Mine has been itching for a couple of days but I haven't been scrtching it because I know that it's bad and I'm afraid that my piercing might reject again. Is this normal or bad for my piercing?</P>
    I have: 3 piercings in each ear, and a navel piercing.
    I also have: two eyes, two ears, two hands, two feet, and one heart, which is taken.

    What material was it pierced with? Do you have any known metal sensitivities? What kind of aftercare are you doing?

    Currently: 5/8" lobes, 2g conches, 2g septum, magnetic implant, tongue bifurication/frenectomy, ~27 hours of tattoo work

    Planned: 14g philtrum, many more tattoos, lip reconstruction

    you may be allergic to the material, or possible have a small infection, are you doing SSS and using some sort of cleaning solution that is appropriate? I'm a huge fan of the Simple Care Spray they sell here for one </p>

    I cant wear poor quality steel, myself, I get itchy and my piercings get angry. Maybe you cant tolerate it, Ti is a good alternative to steel, its expensive but if you cant tollerate steel you have really not many other choices :X haha

    +1 Yes, itching is a healthy sign of healing. If you aren't having any other symptoms I'd say it's quite normal.
    Current: 15/16" first lobes, 6g second lobes, 00g outer conch punch, 12g septum
    Retired: 14g industrial, 16g tragus

    <P mce_keep="true">it isn't hot or red, and it only itches occaisionally kinda like how a papercut itches after you get one, but noe enough to be a nuisance, and there's only pain if I stretch wrong or run but no pain otherwise</P>
