This is my first time posting (hello!), and my second time having my septum pierced. The first time I had it pierced, I could constantly feel the circular barbell pressing against my nostrils, and it made sanity very difficult to maintain - especially since I have to flip it up for my job. After taking it out and allowing it time to heal, I got my septum redone a week ago. Once again, I am constantly distracted by the feeling of the jewelry against my nostrils. It's not a tightness or a pressure, per se, but it is a constant distraction that has made it hard to concentrate on anything else. I do know that, despite the deviated septum surgery I had when I was younger, my septum is a wee bit crooked, and thus I wonder if it's simply a problem with my anatomy. My boyfriend, a former piercer himself, has tried adjusting the diameter, but I believe the feeling is a result of the piercing being a wee bit too high (for me personally; the piercer quite accurately pierced my "sweet spot").
However, when I look at the piercing, nothing appears to be touching my nostrils at all. Am I just absolutely mad, or has anyone else experienced this problem? Is the barbell touching the inside of my nostril? Will it go away?
Thank you in advance!
