    Today i got my upper cartialidge peirced and i guess the ring was dull so when he pulled the needle out to feed the ring in, the ring only went halfway trough. He had to work it trough slowly, causing alot of irritation to the ear. It has sweled up quite a bit and I just had a few questions:

    I am cleaning it twice a day with bactine, and am moving the pericing trough it slowly. The first time i did this it bleed a tiny bit....is this ok?

    How can i reduce the sweeling, I am icing it...any other methods?

    Thanks in advance

    I think your fine. It's normal for a new piercing to bleed a bit, you might want to expect this for the next couple of days. Bactine in my experience has treated me well with all my piercings but some differ. I wouldn'y put anything on that piercing unless you HAVE to. So I would ditch the ice because when your messing with it other than cleaning your still irratating it. Other than that your doing everything right. Have fun with the new addition.

    by moving the jewelry you are just tearing the new skin that is trying to grow inside the piercing. just leave it alone.

  7. I would only do sea salt soakings, cut out the bactine. I soak twice a day for 5 minutes each. Use a q-tip to clean around the rings/barbells if necessary. And don't move it except for cleaning. Also don't knock off the crusties with your nails, it will just irritate it, I know from experience. It will also make healing last longer and sleeping on it delayed.
