Bleeding noses or leave it out?
I'm kinda in a dilemma between choosing for my beloved sceptum piercing, crossing my fingers to wait till I can replace it ... Or taking it out because it keeps opening up the skin when I'm asleep, causing me to wake up to a bloody nose almost every night... What to do, wisdom or love for the jewel?
I would take it out, wait for the skin to heal up and try it again at a later date. ;c
Maybe if you give the skin enough time to completely heal up, it won't cause as much problem when you re-pierce it.
That's odd though, I never had any sorts of problems like that with mine. D;
But I had a sliiiightly similar dilemma, except with my snakebites.
They would rub up against my gums and make my gums bleed constantly because my teeth are super sensitive, so I had to go ahead and take them out. >:
Yeah I got this one a year and a half now, only piercing thats ever really been a pain in the ass like that. I'm just totally bummed about it not working because I love my piercings. :c

also idk if its an option but maybe you could switch to a retainer and wear it flipped up until it heals up more? that way you won't accidentally knock it around or anything, i had mine pierced initially with one once and just kept it in my nose until it healed, maybe that would help until it calms down?
