    Default It won't stop bleeding...

    I had a scaffold pierce on tuesday and I'm having real problems with it bleeding.

    It was ok on the day and yesterday - just very swollen and sore. Then yesterday evening it started bleeding lightly, so I cleaned it up before I went to bed. When I woke up in the morning I was covered in blood and it looked like this:



    I cleaned it up in the shower and removed huge blood clots from around and deep inside my ear, but it's been bleeding ever since. It's continual and soaks through any bandage I try to wrap around it.

    It's still swollen and the although the skin feels numb it hurts deeper.

    I do trust the piercer - he's done most of mine before and my tattoos so I called him this morning and he said that they do bleed and to come back on Sat if it's still bleeding. Is he right? What are other people's experiences of this?

    PLEASE HELP!!

    it prob looks worse as its all there in one go.

    when i got mine it bled a lot but def not that much.

    1 hole bled for a couple of days then the other, just like a constant trickle.

    when its clean, get a small piece of absorbant material like kitchen roll or something and put it like near the holes under the bar, it'll catch the blood and help it clot. Also if there are any clots close to the holes leave them as they aren't full of dirt or anything and they will come off in their own time and may stop more blood coming out
    A family friend whose an ambulance man told me to do this when i was having problems.

    hope that helps.

    Is there anyone on here that's had it done?

    I feel like I'm bothering my piercer if I go back - I've already called twice and he insists it's fine and I must have knocked it

    That does make me feel better - thanks

    I have been putting bandages and cotton wool with tape but they soak through within an hour! And I can't even clean it properly cause it bleeds too fast!!

    I'm freaking out the people at work and they all want me to go to A&E!
