Nose rings falling out is a fairly common thing, especially when one is asleep. The main reason is usually that when the nose ring gets bent or twisted, the clasp or ball can get undone, and the nose ring falls out from the hole.
If you’re having this problem, then you do need to take extra precautions to avoid it from happening, especially if your piercing is not entirely healed.
In this article, we are going to explore some of the reasons why your nose ring keeps falling out, whether you’re asleep or not.
We will also look at what to do to prevent it, and equally the steps to take when it does happen. Nose piercings are gorgeous, and there’s not a reason to give up on rogue piercings because they are giving you a hard time.
Can nose rings fall out?
Yes, a nose ring can fall out. There is just something about them that is super troublesome. However, we’re here to help you with that.
Even with this information, it is understandable if you feel like giving up out of frustration or simply getting tired of the cycle that you have to go through.
Whatever the case, don’t give up. Once you get their nose ring to stay put, you’ll get back to the gorgeous look you were going for in the first place.
Why Does My Nose Stud Keeps Falling Out?
Nose studs come out for some reason, but the main one is that the pierced hole is either too stretched, so the stud keeps falling out, or the stud you have in the first place is small.
The solution for this, though uncomfortable and painful at first, is to get a stud that has a larger gauge than your current one.
It should also be one step up the mm; otherwise, you’ll just be hurting yourself.
The other solution is getting a nose stud, which has a slight hook at the end. When the hook is in the nostril, it will stay flat, making it harder for it to come out even when washing your face or even sleeping.
Again, you want to be gentle to avoid micro-tearing that might lead to infection. Be sure to clean the area after putting in to be on the safe side.
Another trick is getting a nose ring that has a top side that is easy to grasp when you’re putting the nose ring in. It is easier to grasp and won’t give you a hard time as something small and round would.
How to Sleep with a Nose Piercing
If you have a straight nose ring that has fallen out, if you don’t have an alternative near you, you can bend it to form an L-shape.
That will make it harder for it to fall out. The other thing you can do, though unconventional but practical, is to put white take around the ring at night when you sleep so that it doesn’t fall out. It keeps it in place.
What to do when your nose ring falls out
Should your nose ring fall out, here is what you should do if it’s not entirely healed. Before you touch the nose ring or the piercing, wash your hands with warm water and antibacterial soap.
After, get a salt solution made from non-iodized sea salt and warm water to clean the area. You can otherwise use a sterile saline solution purchased from a pharmacy. Clean the piercing with a cotton swab and the solution you’ve chosen.
After, look at the nose ring and inspect it. Look for bends or scratches or any other sign of wear and tear. If there’s any, opt for a new nose ring. The best thing to do is to go back to the piercer for them to place in a new one if you have any concerns.
You do, however, need to do that in record time as nose piercings are famous for closing up quite fast. Alternatively, you can put one in, ensuring that you clean it with the same solution to sterilize it before putting the jewelry through the piercing.
When replacing the jewelry, put the ring through one end and guide it out through the other hole. If it’s not painful, keep guiding it until it gets to the other end. If you do experience any tightness and it is painful, then don’t force it.
Doing so might cause scarring or an infection. Instead, opt for a smaller ring that will have an easier time going through the hole. Ensure that you do all this gently.
If that doesn’t work, then you may, sadly, have to get your nose re-pierced. That’s what is likely to happen if you wake up to a ring that’s fallen out, and you’ve been asleep throughout the night if the piercing is new.
Go back to the professional piercer and have them do it; don’t attempt a DIY. After, they might opt for a corkscrew type or a nose stud. There is also the option of getting the barbell type, but if the piercing is new, again, get the piercer to do it. It’s because they may have to screw in the ball inside of the nose, and that’s delicate.
Nose rings are popular and quite pretty, but that doesn’t mean they don’t come with a tard bit of complications at the beginning. However, once you get a nose ring that’s the right gauge and also one that looks best on you, your problems of the past will be history.
