    I have two piercings, both ear lobes at 6. I went from 10 to 6 on my left in a day and pierced my right, streached to 10 then to 6 in 2 days. After that I left my plastic streaching earrings in with o-rings for a few weeks and they did not like to heal, so I got some metal plugs and pinchers with o-rings and I had the same problem. So a few weeks after I finally got some metal hoops and didn't have any more problems. It didn't occur to me that it was the o-rings irritating the hell out of my lobes until a few weeks ago when I went to put in my flesh tunnels again(I love flesh tunnels) and I used the o-rings. Immediatly within 5 minutes, my lobe was red, itchy and the piercing was oozing. So I got those silicone flesh tunnels from ebay and everything healed up right away. I love these tunnels and would recommend them to everyone.

    What this comes down to is, does anyone else have problems with the rubber in the o-rings? Are there other o-rings I can use that aren't rubber?

    Oh and I had a rubber band on my wrist for 2 hours 1.5 months ago and I still have the rash, so I'm sure I'm allergic to rubber/latex.

    same thing happened to me. I had o-rings for my 2g plugs and for 2 days my ears were on fire. I took ofthe the o rings and was fine. Stupid me I didn't think thatthe rubber inthe O-rings would effect me ( i already knew previously that I was allergic to latex).

    i've heard that clear o-rings are less allergenic than the black ones. what were you using?

    Try and get the clear ones, they're made from nitrile and shouldn't irritate your lobes.

    probably just the stretching... my ears swelled for the at least a week after each stretch... and my latest was also a 10-6 which swelled up a bit/little puss

    edit: nevermind... read the whole thing, your probably alergic to latex...

    I only have the black o-rings. I've looked all around me and can't find any of the clear silicone ones. Perhaps I'll try to find a body art tattoo shop.
    Any places online that I can get some for a decent price without paying 5 bucks for shipping?
