  • i am a piercing artist...the stuff you are describing is called lymph. it's made up of white blood cells and it's a sign that your piercing is healing....the only reason you would need to be concerned if if the piercing became red, swollen, and had green or yellow goo coming from them...just keep cleaning them cause they're healing fine

  • I don't have piercings, but white stuff sounds like pus. You might want to get it checked out. You could prob go back to where you got it done. They should be able to tell you.

  • Alot of my piercings did that no matter how much I cleaned them, my ears, my belly button, my tongue.....I have cleaned all my piercings very well and it went away in a couple of days, but I know how my body reacts to piercings, i'd go get it checked out too

  • Aliis is right, I had mine for 10 years and it sounds perfectly normal. No worries.

  • White and clear stuff coming out is actually good. It means it's healing.

  • I used to have my nipples pierced and I still have that white stuff coming out. It's been almost 9 years since I took the rings out. As soon as I can afford to and I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding I'm getting them redone. I miss my nipple rings.
