weeks. It may be slightly red which can persist for several months. Some bleeding can occur in the first few days. A whitish-yellow fluid can crust over the jewelry, which is not pus. Skin tightening around the jewelry as it heals may make movement or rotation difficult. The piercing may lay over to one side. The body may naturally decide to move the jewelry.
