Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
I think you should avoid the ring till the problem subsides.
If the exuberant tissue is coming out from a different site then the prick site then it needs to be evaluated by a clinician.
If the edge of hole is showing excess reddish tissue then you should remove the rings and put a silk thread to make a ring, ensure that it remains dry all the time, mop it dry as soon as possible after bath and wait till the area heals and the tissue dries up.
I hope the advise will be helpful.
