    May seem obv but don't touch it too much -only increases the chances of infection! When I stretched mine from 3 to 4mm and then 4 to 5mm it hurt like a bitch! It also went red and sore, I left it for a few days -just keeping it clean and stuff and it quickly settled down! I figued it was my bodies reation to a fairly nasty shock

    Hope it turns out ok and stops hurting soon

    Right now one has dried blood on the outside. The other still looks manky and they are both a bit swelled. I have decided I am going to leave jewellery out and clean them til everything has cleared up. Then I'll just have to see what size fits in and go from there...

    Has anyone got any better suggestions?

    To be honest that sounds like the best plan... let it heal and see whats left to work with...

    MMCL,
    upto 5mm now, grief, leaping ahead of me.
    Pain, well, you kind of get used to it I suppose, just got back from 31/2 hours of my new tatoo, yesterday stretched my P.A. up a size, and the left lobe I had done two weeks ago at 1.6mm upto 4mm, now that thobbed a bit for several hours, should have had it larger to start with.
    Anyone got a hole punch I can borrow next time

    Ive never understood folks wanting to stretch their holes so damn fast...whats wrong with a lil patience? Ive taken just shy of a year to get to 8mm (granted I did have some delays with blowouts waiting to clear up with weeks of hot compresses before the next stretch so without those I could knock a few months off) Ive gone up a mm roughly each month give or take a week or two. Slow and steady wins the race folks....why go mad and cause yourself pain when you can just take it easy? Ive never had any blood or severe pain ..the most any of the stretches have been is the 'tight' feeling for a few hours afterwards

    all good things come to those who wait!
