Nose piercings are a trendy way that a person can express their creative style by wearing different pieces of jewelry. If you take care of your nose piercing and keep jewelry in the hole the piercing will not close up, but if you remove the jewelry and do not place anything else in the hole it can close up faster than you think. If you had to take out your nose piercing due to work, school or special events, you might have to check to see if your piercing has closed up.
Clean the area where your nose piercing is and wash your hands before you start looking at the nose piercing. This prevents germs from entering the pierced area.
Locate the spot where your piercing jewelry usually goes. There will be a small hole or a dot where the hole was located on the side of your nose.
Clean the nose stud that you plan on placing in your nose. Apply an antibacterial soap and rinse the soap off with warm water. Pat the nose stud dry.
Place the nose stud in between your pointer finger and your thumb. Place the end of the stud against the hole of the nose piercing. Slide the nose stud into the hole and stop if you feel resistance against your nose stud. Adjust the nose stud so that it is entering the piercing hole straight and then continue to try and slide the stud in. If you feel resistance, stop immediately. Your nose piercing has grown over on the inside and you need a professional to reopen the hole.
