hello all my fellow PG friends.. So i want to get my ears pierced a second time, i have been wanting to do this for some time now. Every time I am close like at the mall I think to myself r u crazy why would you purposely injure yourself and chance aggravating the PG. So I guess i need to hear it from you guys. Is it reasonable to think that getting a second piercing will not cause me any PG issues or should I just drop it.. I guess things are good when this is my big question at the moment right !! thanks for your input!

30 Year old Female. Dx with Crohns 2005. Just went med free as of July '09 doing well so far.... Hx: Imuran 50 mg. Had 3 remicade infusions which put me in remission upon dx.

Dx with Pyoderma Gangrenosum Nov '07. Used Prednisone and 3 more infusions to close up the PG.
I do believe everything happens for a reason, but I still am waiting to figure this one out :)

I'm not too familiar with PG, but would a couple of piercings really cause issues? It might not be a bad idea to talk to your GI or derm (not sure which one covers PG) and see what they think of the idea. And as a side note, the piercing guns they use at the mall are basically shoving a thumb tack through your tissue. I suggest going to a tattoo shop and get it down with proper needles.

Hi, I am new to this support group and am a Pyoderma Gangernosum sufferer. However I can't find the PG forum in the start up page. Can you maybe help direct me to the people who suffer from this condition. Thanks.

I would not get mine pierced again.
Unfortunately we do not have the space to have a pg excusive forum. I would strongly encourage you to use the site search engine to find the threads about it and there was talk of another group getting started, but I have not heard back from anyone about it. You might try yahoo groups etc.
