    hello Often a piercing done with slightly irritating material like steel or an alloy of gold (usually including copper, silver and trace metals) can cause irritation and prevent complete healing. Switch to an implant certified piece of titanium jewelry for better success. http://jewelry.piercing.org/ can explain more about selecting a safe piece. Other notable cofactors the irritation could be related to: *cleaning products you use; chemical or particulate irritation *the shape and size of the jewelry; a piece out of proportion to your body *mechanical friction/motion of the jewelry; moving it around too much *sleeping on the piercing; putting pressure on the jewelry *tap water/moisture not dried off completely; fluid causing ulceration of the wound bed hope it helps
