Most piercings heal well, and allergic reactions are rare. But before you have a piercing or choose a new piece of jewellery, you should make sure you’re not allergic to the materials. Some, such as silver, nickel, cadmium, and lead, may cause symptoms more serious than the normal redness and itching.
For these reasons, titanium is popular with piercers, as it doesn’t react with body fluids and is hypoallergenic and non-magnetic. These properties make it the number one choice for piercing jewellery, and you’ll find lots of titanium products in the Crazy Factory shop.
By the way, if you suffer from hay fever, don’t have your nose pierced during the season. Sneezing and blowing your nose irritate the piercing and slow the healing process.
