    Default Headaches after piercing

    I keep getting headaches since I got my conch piercing last Friday, its quite annoying really. Is this just a by product of the healing due to my immune system? Is this something that usually happens? Its my first piercing so Im not sure.

    Maybe you are stressed about something? I dunno, I didn't think that a piercing could cause a headache. Though that part of your ear does hurt a little when putting pressure on it. Perhaps they caught a nerve?

    Hmm, it could be because of the piercing. I had an infection in one of the holes on my scaffold piercing and it caused the worst pains in my head ive ever had in my life, because there are lots of nerves and stuff there.

    Yeah that sounds like it might be the reason. Just clean it loads I guess! I use antiseptic wipes. The Savlon spray is really good cos it dtibbles into the hole. And cotton buds to clean around the hole entrance too!
