I got my daith peirced over 3 years ago and it has not healed. I also got 5 ear peircings (conch and helix) about a year ago and they haven't healed either. When I had my spleen removed I was told getting tattoos and peircings may be a challenge (I'm heard-headed :/). I have been in remission for almost 4 years and my count is at 398K. I've gotten 4 tattoos in the last 3 years and they have healed wonderfully. I'm pretty convinced the ITP and/or splenectomy is causing my peircings to not heal. Like my body doesn't get that I want them so it's constantly attacking the areas. Anyone else have this issue or heard of it?
Personally if I had a piercing that had not healed I wouldn't get another 5 piercings until that one healed!!
Haven't heard anyone here that had a piercing not heal & say ITP caused it.
I don't think you want to hear this but people I've known who have had piercings that won't heal have had to get rid of
them in order for the wound [and it is a wound] to heal. Your body, you have to do what you feel is best for you. Good luck!
