There she blows! Even with a nose ring.
Dear Belly Bling,
I want to get my nose pierced but I’m worried that because I have allergies, I won’t be able to blow my nose. How do you clear out your sinuses with a nose ring?

Dear Sneezy Bling Girl,
We are thrilled to tell you that yes, you can get your nose pierced even if you have allergies. Obviously, as with anything that involves your body, you can reassure yourself if you are really worried about it by clearing it with your family doctor first. However, most of us here at Belly Bling have allergies or get colds and we love our nose rings!
First, don’t get your nose pierced during peak allergy season, just to make things easier. After you get your nose pierced your immune system is working hard as your nose heals, so, it doesn’t make sense to get the piercing when your body is going to be working hard dealing with the sneezes and itchy eyes of peak allergy or flu season. Instead, get your nose pierced when the worst of it is over.
Yes, you can blow your nose and have your nose pierced! You do want to be careful in the initial few weeks after first getting your nose pierced – gentle there she blows! However, after that, it’s really quite easy to blow your nose. Some people just move the ring or the stud to the side and some people simply blow their noses without thinking about it. You’ll find out that it’s not that big of a deal once you get use to it all.
Get inspired to get your nose pierced with some of our favorite nose ring fashion must haves!
Blessings and Bling,
