    Vitamin E oil took the discolored dark red that I had originally in my 0's. It would only come up in the cold weather or in rain.

    I'd downsize for a while. Depending on how bad they are...downsize a lot.

    take them out, leave them, then learn to stretch properly?

    +1 to the downsizing or even taking them out all together.

    How long did it take you to get to 33mm?

    To be fair, what people said about you stretching too fast is true, but I've seen the lobes of people that were/are proper bummed by several people on here, with loads of stretches and supposedly a good method of doing it, with an awful purpley tinge to the outer part.

    ^ I apologise for how badly that's worded but I couldn't think of a better way

    purple/blue/black = circulation issues, you need more time with plugs out and more massages. Altough if it gets black thats pretty much no going back, lol

    I was gonna suggest circulation issues, try sleeping without plugs in or better still, downsizing considerably and sleeping without plugs in and doing twice daily oil massages.
