It's unlikely that your symptoms have anything to do with the piercing and removal. this new symptom could be a viral infection and should not be ignored if it isn't gone on its own in a couple of days. if you get a rash or the itching and tingling feeling increases, I would be thinking about a herpes infection. See your doctor
Stephen Brenner
Tingling and itching is a sign of infection, irritation or inflamation. You could be developing a cold sore but the length of time since you had the piercings removed suggests that isnt part of the problem. If a rash develops see your doctor. If your symptoms persist see your doctor but you can watch this for a week or two without affecting the eventual outcome
Any piercing of skin is prone to infection . You should remove the piercings and clean the skin with hydrogen peroxide and clean the rings with alcohol. If the itching does not go away, see a physician.
Most likely you have had some minor nerve injury related to the piercings which is now healing on its own. Minor injuries to the skin can sever tiny sensory nerves in the skin, and the loss of sensation can lead to tingling as the nerve begins to heal. Return to normal sensation might or might not occur. Have your family doctor examine you to determine the degree of sensory loss and to determine if any further investigation is warranted.
