    caring for piercings is really personal preference. normally i do sea salt soaks but i just left my septum alone and only cleaned it when i needed to get the crusties off.

    just do what feels right for you. some people soak and some people leave them alone.

    for the first few weeks I cleaned mine twice a day by doing the sea salt soaks for 5 mins each time. Now I only soak it when I wake up. Everyone has a different preference like rikki1991 mentioned.

    I wiped mine clean gently with a cotton bud after it was done, never done anything to it after that and never once had a problem with it.

    (Do clean/wipe over it with plain water though :p)

    Mine's a little over 4 weeks now since I got it. My piercer told me it takes about 6-8 weeks to heal. I don't want to change it too soon/as it's healing. But I am curious, how long did everyone wait to change their jewelry?

    Think I waited about 2-3 months, just base it on how it's healing for you and leave it a couple of months.

    Can happen to anyone at any size. I had it for about a month or so then it went. Some people have it on and off all the time others never have it.

    if it does come and go does cleaning it make the smell go away until it needs cleaned again? or is it a constant smell?

    I had septum funk for about a month when I first had mine pierced (initially at 1.2mm/16g) and have noticed it again when I recently stretched it up to 1.6mm/14g. However, it is nowhere near as bad as it was when I initially had it pierced. After the initial healing period I didn't notice the septum funk smell at all
    Stabbings I still have
    Right ear
    : 2 x helix, conch & rook
    Left ear: helix, conch & tragus
    Tongue web, nostril, septum
    Triangle, VCH & 2 x outers

    I didn't end up getting my septum pierced today :( I was in Manchester last night going round casinos with work and didn't get home until 3am then I was just too tired to get into town to get it done today.

    I'm hopefully still going ahead with it... What size did everyone initially get it pierced at? Because the shop I'm going to pierce at either 1.2 or 1.6 so I can choose what size I want.
