User:it is noto healing at all
User:though i see some signs.. but there is little tissue at one side
User:will tht subside automatically or should i get it treated with a doc
Doctor:Is there any pus discharging from the area pierced?
User:there was very little puss 3 days back .. now no puss..
User:it is almost dry.. but some red tissue is still there at one side
Doctor:It is better for you to stop using any nose ring for some time now
Doctor:Let the wound heal and then you can wear it again
Doctor:If there is no pus there is no need to worry
Doctor:It will naturally heal
