    Default Woke up half a chipmunk :Y

    Okay, I don't have half a chipmunk as a pet and woke him up.. I look like one :X

    Must've banged my right cheek piercing really baaaad in my sleep, eeep. I'm supposed to go to a concert tomorrow, what can I do to reduce swelling as much as possible? I'm realistic, I know it can't be reduced by much, but... I scare myself looking in the mirror :|

    Just noticed... It's really hard like 3/8" in diameter around the actual piercing, the rest of it is soft tissue.. Damn.. Crap..

    NOTE: I've always used Ibuprofen and tea bags to reduce hyp. scarring, and that seems to have helped now too. It's reduced by maybe 1.5 mm since 4 hours ago, thank God.. I know how to treat puncture wounds, and with that sort of thing, you should alternate hot and cold compress.. but I'm scared of using ice on piercings, should I? Of course not directly on the skin, but yeah.. Moew :(

    Thanks

    It's muuuuch better now, although my piercings look a little asymmetrical ^^' Nothing I can't live with I alternated ice packs and tea bags, took ibuprofen and crushed some cortisone in warm water and soaked it, worked like a charm

    Haha, I know, never happened before! Not only with piercings, I've never get swollen! X3 So you understand my panic ^^' I guess it's Murphy's law.. or the cheek piercings-law.

    It is completely gone now though! It kinda feels a tiny bit sore when I smile, but other than that, no problems Cheers guys x
