Wow.  Some people are idiots.
Don't put glue on your nose.  Don't apply harsh chemicals to your piercing site.  Don't use rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide - too harsh.
Boil water and add a small amount of pure sea salt.
Once the water has cooled enough to touch your skin, dip q-tips in and gently swab around the piercing site, inside and outside your nose.
Then, immerse your nose in the water, and try to let it soak for at least 5-10 minutes.  Repeat this at least twice a day.  Keep your sheets and towels clean, don't apply makeup over the piercing, and be as gentle as you possibly can.  Don't twist the stud/ring and don't remove it.

Ok look I've had my nose pierced for years! When I first got it pierced I developed a very painful bump (keloid) on my nose. Before you go to bed take an aspirin and crush it very fine and place a DROP of water on it, just enough to make a thick paste. Then put the paste over the entire piercing and then put a bandaid over it. Leave this on ALL night and take it off in the morning and you can rinse the excess powder off with water or Basting with a Q-tip. It will be gone in a week or two if you do it right every night!

Tha is crazy as hell. Don't put some damn super glue and nail polish on your nose expecially if it is pierced. That is common since. Do the aspirin paste.

Nose piercing often result in infections, which is very painful as well as gives a bad look to your appearance. First of all use a nose pin that is made of pure silver. Silver is a known antiseptic element and if used as a nose pin or an ear pin, it prevents any infections. Secondly keep the nose pin area clean and apply an antiseptic regularly to prevent any infections.

I don't have my nose pierced  but I put on the fake gems with krazy glue and I think one day my skin sort off peeled off with the glue. Now this clear watery liquid comes out and then it hardens in place. I peeled of the hardened clear liquid but it goes goes back.. I don't know what to do. Is my nose infected? And if it is what shuld I do??

I pierced my nose and it kept coming out, so I got clear nail polish and put it on the stud then put it back in. It burned but then it stoped. It hasn't fallen out since (:
