    my gf got a tragus, but it has a keloid (i think) on the inside and out. the outside one is about 1-2mm in diameter. she's been using sea salt water on it and tea tree oil but it still hasn't gone away. she's been doing it for about3 weeks now. is there anything she can do?

    How long has she had the piercing?

    I'll bet it's actually not a keloid, just an irritation. For the first year after my tragus and helix piercings, they would randomly get that reddish swelling around the piercing. Tea tree oil and salt water would eventually clear it up, but it took a while.

    Change out the jewelry to something that doesn't put pressure on the piercing site.

    Friend had the same issues with her tragus for years and it cleared up in weeks when she put in a straight stud instead of the hoop that was in there.
