    Posted: April/29/2008 at 7:15pm
I have had my nipples pierced for over a year now ( since 03/20/07 ) but they have never fully healed, they are not rejecting and are not majorly irritated though the right nipple did have an absess but I treated and it subsided. I was wondering what I can do to help them fully heal as saline soaks don't seem to be helping is there an antiseptic cream available that would be safe to use or should I downsize the jewellery ( currently at 12g) and treat them with saline soaks until they are fully healed. I would rather not downsize or remove the jewellery and have them re-pierced but I am willing to do anything to ensure the piercings heal properly, I will be very thankful for any advice.

what are you wearing in them, anything with a tight curvature like small cbr, can cause long term misery

Nope, he's got barbells.  There could be a number of reasons why they are not healed properly yet.  Are you absolutely sure the jewelry material is not causing an issue?  Even 316L stainless steel causes reactions for some.  And if it is a lower grade, it's even worse.  Maybe try some titanium.  You may just be a very slow healer.  Did your other piercings seem to take longer than average to heal?  My nipples took about a year to fully heal.  Are you using premade saline or mixing your own solution?  If you are mixing your own, are you using the proper dilution (1/4 teaspoon in 8 ounces of water).  If you are using the right amount and not soaking more than a few times a day, try discontinuing the sea salt and using just warm compresses instead.  The warmth helps with healing as much as the salt.
