Surface Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) Piercing Migration

 

This message is from a woman who has an improperly placed (surface )Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercing on top of a previously rejected site:

Hello again Elayne, here is an image of my botched VCH piercing AGAIN.

I emailed you a while ago referring the misplacement and worry about migration. I've had this worry since I emailed you the second time around and I've been watching my piercing like a hawk and cleaning it regularly! 

Like last time it's still quite tender and sore and itchy like its still healing. I don't know whether the skin is too thin and it's pushing it out or that's normal or the light or what! I'm so worried because my last one grew out and has left two pieces of scarring and I really don't want this to do it again but I love my piercing and want to keep it :( 

I've got a horrible feeling your going to tell me to take it out so is there any chance you could recommend any good pierces for this as I cannot afford another botched job as I would most definitely want to get this done again! I live in the south west of England.

Please help me!

My reply:

I'm sorry, but it is likely that you will, in fact, have to remove the jewelry. It is a surface piercing and those often are unsuccessful. If it hasn't been settling in well since you last contacted me, then that is a bad sign for the futureā€¦ Also the more scar tissue you generate through attempting to heal it, the harder it could be to get a properly placed one in the future--and to successfully heal it. I do suggest you remove it, especially if you have hopes of trying again with a better piercer.

The only competent piercer I know of and refer to in the UK is in London. Her info is at the bottom of this page of my website: http://piercingbible.com/piercer-referrals
