Info/FAQs > Piercings > My microdermal anchor keeps getting irritated..

Search the Info and FAQ section for entries containing:

Although foresight and proper placement of your microdermals prevent this from happening most of the time, we do all sorts of things with our bodies that we don't take the time to think about too.  To help prevent further irritation, unscrew and take off the gem/disc end if you know you're going to be doing something that will irritate/snag at your microdermal anchor.  (Don't do this while healing - just be as aware of your piercing as possible!)  You may need the piercer's help with this if it is your first time unscrewing the end and/or it doesn't unscrew easy enough with regular (not excessive) pressure.  Continuing to knock/snag/irritate your piercing can not only cause pain, but possible migration or rejection.
