    Default Scaffold Problems, Please Help!

    Hello, so I got my scaffold pierced a couple of weeks back, and it's been playing up for about a week now, and it's taken a turn for the worst. It's swollen, and there's pus and bleeding whenever i clean it. It was pierced with two separate bars, the bar closest to my face is the one that I'm having problems with, and the bar has been changed twice to have a longer bar put into it so it had space. I've tried salt soaks but it doesn't seem to be helping. any advice?
    My Piercings -
    Left Ear: lobe 18mm + 6mm
    Right Ear: lobe 18mm + 6mm, Conch
    Others: nostrils + high nostrils (L/R), tongue webbing, tongue, philtrum, Labret, navel, nipples (L/R), 3mm septum

    What do you mean taken a turn for the worse? Two weeks is still really early days for two cartilage piercings, they can play up for over a year.

    What colour is the "puss"? How are you cleaning it? Any idea what material the bars are? Who changed the bar those two times?

    If you could upload a picture to an image hosting site and link it here we could get a better idea of what it's looking like.

    Swelling is normal, white or pale yellow fluid isn't pus and is also normal, bleeding not too much but it just depends. A piercing and 2 jewellery changes in 2 weeks means it's undergone a fair amount of trauma as well.

    As above, a pic will help.

    How much salt are you putting in your soaks?

    I should have been more specific, i was pierced about three weeks ago, and it is titanium bars, my piercer changed them for me, and it's a yellow coloured pus. I've been cleaning it with saline solution and hot compress. I will upload a picture shortly.

    Pale yellow is fine, it's called lymph and is part of the healing process. Soaks should be 1/4tsp to 250ml water, any more and it will irritate it.
