If there is no sign of infection, and healing is complete following the closure of a previous piercing, a nose can be pierced again after three months.
Things to Consider
Depending on the amount of cartilage pierced, the time for a fresh piercing to close can last up to 12 months. If the previous piercing has not fully healed, then another piercing must not be done. It is important to be vigilant in caring for a nose piercing in order to avoid infection and complications.
When considering a nose piercing, it is important to seriously consider the risks of the procedure. The risks involved with piercings include infection, allergic reactions to jewelry, nerve damage and scarring. If the nose must be pierced again, then a three-month waiting period is advisable.
