    Wow, that really is swollen! I think ibuprofen should be able to help with the pain

    So it's officially week 1! My ear 'pussed' (sorry for the weird word haha) a looot last night but only at the top of my Daith.
    These pics were before cleaning.





    And this is after I cleaned my ear. Mmmm, freshly soaked ear



    My ear was still aching like a mofo! So I went out and bought some ibuprofen and my ear already feels MUCH better!
    To everyone who wants their Daith pierced, MAKE SURE you have ibuprofen/Advil. Best $11 ever spent hahaha.
    Will keep this updated.

    Ouch - I must have been very lucky with mine. Tiny bit of swelling for the first 48 hours and virtually no crusting. Certainly not anything like yours.

    Hope it settles down for you soon.

    Heh indeedy, I think I pay about 30p for 16 ^^

    Aww your poor ear :( My tragus was swollen for weeks after I had it done, people would chuckle at the difference in sizes between them, but yours is really impressive
    I'd be tempted to try some soaks with Ice to bring it down, for my recent piercing I wrapped some ice in kitchen roll and pressed it on gently, but idk if that would be possible with a daith. Hope it go's down soon!
    Hai, I'm Nox!!

    Holy shit! That's crazy! We get 72 for $11, what a rip off -_-
    and thanks guys! I'm practically living off of these ibuprofen's. I don't feel my ear AT ALL and it's perfect! I'll post a pic of my ear today in a hour or two, it's crusty and still swollen a lot but it doesn't hurt at all Also, I've noticed with the Daith that when you don't take Ibuprofen and your Daith is super swollen, that when you open up your jaw, it makes a 'popping' noise, and it's noticeable too! It's really weird and feels really uncomfortable. But when I take the ibuprofen (which I have been) it's not even the slightest bit uncomfortable! Weird eh?! :k
    Aye! I'm Cody!

    Have:
    Tongue~14g. L&R ears stretched to half inch. Right Daith~16g. Right Vertical Industrial (Helix to inner conch)~14g. Left 0g inner conch punch. Left Double Inner Conch~14g. Left Central Flat~14g. L&R Second Lobes~14g.
    Tatts: 2 Hours in the chair~Doubles lines of quotes on both wrists.
    Had: Left Inner Conch, Custom Industrial. Right Forward Helix. Tongue Web. Smiley.
