    So here's an update...

    My tragus has got quite less swollen but now I have "the bump" on the outside. I make the soaks every day, I've tried using camomile and it just doesn't seem to go away! Some days I don't even think about it, but there are other times when it is terribly annoying!

    I don't know what else to do...

    Yes, I've left it alone for about a month... I guess it was no help the fact that it was during the summer and I went to the beach for a week! The only thing I did then was rinsing it when I was in the shower...
    Now I'm doing the SSS with the chamomile. I've had it already when it was about a month and a half old. But it went away. Now it has been almost to months since it appeard and it just seems to sit here, no changes at all...

    2 months isn't that long really, some people have them for months on end, with one of mine it lingered for a few months I reckon, I just ignored it and looked one day and it had gone, that was after trying soaks and chamomile etc which rarely work for me. Is the bar still quite long?

    A little bit I guess. Do you think it should be smaller? I'm kind of affraid it will eventually swell up again and thats why I haven't put in a smaller one yet..

    A piercer will be able to determine better than me, however a long bar can cause irritation which causes swelling/bumps etc...

    Be persistent, most of my cartilage piercings have taken at least 6months to heal properly! It's a pain but worth it in the end
