    Since I got pg, my piercings have gone sore, I've had to take 6 of my lobe piercings out and one of my lip, and my lip and neck piercings are hurting as well.

    Anyone else?

    Finally!!

    I thought it was just me!! My ears have been sore as hell, ive been having to clean them every night back like when i first got them pierced lol.

    The only earring i seem to be able to wear without them getting irritated are some white gold studs. All of my other piercings have been fine though

    Not just you! I've got a pea on my one of my two right ear piercings. Since having pierced ears I've had glandular fever and while I was ill with it the piercings never healed. This has happened again during pregnancy so I am convinced it because of the reduced immune system. I'm not happy with the huge lump that is there now though. I think it's going to have to be cut off...

    peanutbean, a friend of mine at college had keloid(sp?) scarring, basically where the scar tissue didnt stop growing and she got loads of "lumps" round her piercings. not sure if its the same thing, but it might be worth looking into!

    I've just gone manky all over, ewww! I took out my belly bar because it was poking through all my clothes making me look bigger. My ear piercings have all got cheesy gunk in them, not sore, just gross :( The other week all my old surgery scars went raised and sore but they're better now.

    Thanks Alice. I know all about them as my mum has keloid skin and my brother got one when he got his ear pierced. I wait until I was 24 to get mine done and that was after having had minor skin surgery so I knew I wouldn't get them. It's one of my second piercings that's gone funny and I've had them for 2 years, the lump arrived at about 5 months pregnancy. I'm certain it's not a keloid and it is infected on and off. Spoken with the doctor and tried antibiotic cream. Just hoping it will clear after the baby otherwise I think it will need hot wiring or cutting off. Yuck.

    Nope....I've had my bellybutton ring in since I was 21 (I'm 31 now)and have had 4 babies, tonnes of scans etc and never took it out. It looks a bit daft now on such a big fat belly:blush:....maybe it's time I just took it out eh?:rofl:

    I had to take my tongue bar out about 2 weeks ago because it got so sore. It felt so weird cuz I had had it in since i was 16. If it closes up I will get it redone after the baby as well as my lip and 2 new tattoos yey
