Problem with piercing
I have gotten my nose pierced recently. I have a pin in it. However, skin is growing over the piercing despite me having a nose stud in it. What can I do to stop the skin from growing over my piercing?

Greetings. You must see a qualified dermatologist near you. There may be a mild infection that may have triggered this, you may have to get the excess skin removed by rf ablation. This would solve your issue. Hope this helps. Warm regards.
