Here is My Question:
I want to get a lip piercing but not sure if my skin will be able to handle it.
I wish I could help you answer this question. I can tell you that MS will not affect the ability of your skin to repair itself after trauma, surgery, or piercing. However, certain treatments like recent or current corticosteroids or immunosuppressants can affect healing.
