Septum piercings have been used as a fashion statement since the start of human civilization. It was used by the elite of our early histories. Like the great pharaohs and their own officials of their empires use it to show power. Jewelry piercings were also used as a symbol of riches and wealth. The more piercings you have the richer you are. Today, we are using piercings as a form of a fashion statement that expresses a soul or a personality of an individual. Septum piercings are a trend for people who have a dark and mysterious personality.
Septum piercings have a variety of different drawbacks such as infections and pain due to those infections. However, the question remains about why do we experience pain from septum piercing and if we should worry about the pain we experience. The answer has a silver lining between the good and the bad possibilities when you are experiencing pain after your septum piercing. The pain can be caused by
- Faulty operation procedure. There are specific ways and steps in order to successfully execute a septum piercing without any noxious and unwanted after effects such as pain or even infections (which can be the worst-case scenario).
- Infections occur especially if the material used for piercing was not cleaned before using or the patient was just not that hygienic when it comes to the cleanliness of their own body.
The good news, however, is that pain after a septum piercing is normal. The only thing that makes it not normal is its excruciating pain which is not usually experienced by patients who underwent normal and quality piercings. The next one that is a red flag when it comes to infections is its swelling. If pain persists along with the swelling of the pierced region, it is best to consult a doctor.
