    Unhappy Tragus piercing trauma

    okay trauma may be exaggerating a little but I think I have a keloid on my tragus piercing!

    its really sensitive, I can't even take the piercing out as its way too painful to do so. uh, anybody had this problem? don't get grossed out or anything but thought I'd share it with you all. Looks great! no, really any advice or remedies? please

    Click on the link in my signature to be taken to the bump thread and get all the answers you'll need or that will probably be posted here anyway.

    Looks like possible bad placement, irritation from poor quality jewellery to me, go to a competent piercer if you want it removed and cannot do it yourself or for the jewellery chang which will be suggested in the above mentioned thread.

    coinslot ear cartilage removal, 5mm conch punch
    Cosmetic Modifications: Scar removal x7, semi permanent eyebrows, semi permanent eyeliner, semi permanent lipstick, lip dermal filler, botox

    eeek that didn't happen to me. But, the piercer who gave it to me put a stud in and i said"i don't think that will be right" and he was like this is the best way for it to heal. I wanted a hoop knowing about piercings and using common knowledge. Anyway i was like he's the professional. So he did it. and i've had hell... it became very irritated and i woke up with dry blood drippings. So i said screw it... and i went a got a hoop and had a piercer put it in... and even that piercer said that they shouldn't have originally putted a stud in it especially the shape it was *very very tiny*. Anyway he put the hoop in and it's healing on it's own fine... no issue.

    Anyway my advice is to always use high quality jewelry when you get a piercing and also give it enough breathing room so that you can clean it as well as moister doesn't get locked in between the jewelry and the skin. And also think to yourself will this jewelry be appropriate for it.... will it cause irritation (through pulling/rough handling *when sleeping and other activities*)

    Anyway hope my advice helps u in the future if you decide to get another form of piercing.

    Uh, as far as I'm aware, proper placement and all that aside, labret studs and barbells *are*, in fact, the best way to heal piercings.

    Either go to a different piercer or a doctor and see what they can do. That does look painful :S
