    You have basically answered why it aint healing yourself...you stretched too quickly. I think the best thing to do is go back to 4mm...leave it alone for a couple of months then go up to 5mm
    Current - 4x lobes, 2xtragus, conch, rook, & labret
    Retired - 2x lobes, tragus & anti-tragus, septum

    Yep... ^^ thats all you can do.

    The answer to pretty much every problem with stretches is to downsize for a while.

    Yeah... That is pretty stupid... =/ You should wait at least three weeks between each stretch. And if you're not paitent enough to wait three weeks, then don't stretch. Simple as really. Downside to 4mm again, and wait at least 3 weeks (More if you can wait!) before going up to 5mm.

    out of (morbid)curiosity, how long did you take getting it to 4mm?
    Lobe - 19mm
    Inner to outer conch orbital - 1.6mm
    Center lip - now 3mm
    Tongue - 4mm

    i think people should have to take an IQ test before being allowed a piercing
    Saz
    Piercings:


    2 sets of lobes at 1.2 and 1 set of 2.4mm on both ears

    right ear: + 1 Helix at 1.2mm, Conch

    left ear: + 2x Helix and Daith

    nose


    Planned: Some more ear stuff and hopefully a microdermal or two once I know where I want to put them!

    Remove all jewellery completly for 6 months and then begin the stretching process again, properly.
