    I've had my ears stretched to 9/16 for awhile. I usually clean my plugs every couple of days but i recently got some new glass plugs that i dont want to sleep in. So i started cleaning them nightly and just leaving them out. But evey morning it seems like they are getting harder to put back in and there is a little pain. Could the everyday cleaning cause any scare tissue build up? :noes:

    yeah it's def not b/c the plugs are clean. it's good to pull them out at least once a day and clean them.

    you could also be using too much of the wrong kind of soap and are drying out the skin on your lobes

    I'm using a little bit of provon soap. But can stretching my ears a tiny bit every morning cause any scar tissue. Kinda like a calis or something? I havent had to scalpel yet and would rather not if it can be avoided.

    its not causing scar tissue. your ears are closing up slightly over night. this is why it hurts to slide them in every morning. keep your plugs in at night and it wont happen.

    On a sidenote, I've learned that cleaning a fresh piercing too much is possible. For the first 1.5 weeks I had my monroe, I went balls out cleaning the damn thing. It was all red and irritated, I finally went into the shop and they told me to stop being such a cleaning nazi, and it would get better. It did. :)

    I understand that they are closing up nightly that is obvious. All im asking is if i keep doing this can the everyday stretching cause scare tissue. I dont mind them hurting a little i just don't want to have to get them scalpeled in a year or two if i go up any sizes.
