I have a nipple piercing that is traveling (out) I think, I had the piercer look at it and he said he wouldn't be concerned. I want to take it out (I think that it has worked it's way to the surface in one spot) but I read somewhere that you shouldn't take out your nipple piercings without putting in shunt because then outside will heal and bacteria can get trapped inside. Any advice? Should I go to a Dr? The piercer said the piercing is fine but I don't think it is.
