    Has it stopped bleeding now? As long as its not still pouring blood then you probably knocked it in your sleep. Clotting is good. Leave it to settle, do a cool soak later today (warm will encourage more bleeding).

    My best bet is that you accidentally slept on it or knocked it around in your sleep. 2 days old, if this happened, it's perfectly normal to bleed. I wouldn't worry much, clean the blood and do an SSS maybe with a chamomile bag in it, if you are not allergic/sensitive to it. (I am) Try as much as you can not to sleep on it or knock it around.

    Okay, thanks guys, just not used to seeing so much blood haha :P Kinda freaked out. It's not bleeding anymore, just a bit sore but I guess thats from trying to get all the dry blood off.
    Thanks for the help x

    Leave off cleaning the blood off if you can (I know it looks manky), cause cleaning it might start the bleeding again. Happy healing

    Managed to get someone to help me clean off all the blood without further bleeding, did a SSS too. Was quite badly swollen but seems to have gone down a bit, probably take some before bed so I can sleep instead of it throbbing...or should I avoid this incase it like..numbs it and I cant feel knocking it and making it bleed again..and dont painkillers make blood thinner?

    Ibuprofen thins the blood so might not be the best idea to take it, paracetamol is probably better although I'm no medical expert. Arnica is good for swelling I believe and is a natural remedy.

    I thought it was the other way round-paracetamol thins ypur blood :S.Hmm, dunno really.I think most can to some extent.Personally I took ibuprofen when my industrial was stupidly swollen and it didn't think my bloos out any more, can't say it had much of an effect though, but I think arnica would probably be stronger.Just try and make sure you don't bash it in your sleep
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.

    Yeah I woke up to an earful of blood from a days-old piercing I also recommend cold SSS

    If you have long hair, try tying it up on that side so you don't roll onto your ear.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Aspirin thins the blood. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory so it's actually really good to help bring the swelling down.
