I have been wearing a surgical steel CBR for the last 7 years in my septum and have never had an issue. recently i lost the ball, and the spare ball.. then the ring fell down the sink. I was in need of a new piece and i was currently saving up for a titanium clicker. So i just needed something temporary, since i was already at the mall i stopped by that certain store that used to be “all about the music” since i had a discount to use. I saw this cute little opal and “surgical stainless steel” piece and bought it. I’ve been wearing it BOUT 2- 2 ½ weeks now, i clean my piercing with qtips after showers a few times a week blah blah blah. But then i got an irritation in my nose, i wrote it off to allergies till my nose got tender then i took the clicker out so i could let my piercing rest a little bit, and lo and behold CORROSION!
