    You're welcome! Also, stop with the massages until they're fully healed or you'll only irritate your lobes more and prolong healing.

    Happy healing!

    I would recommend some emu oil if you have it available. I got my lobe pierced a couple weeks ago and the emu oil helped it feel great when it was fussy. Just use a tiny bit once or twice a day. I've heard it also makes your lobes thicker and more resilient to stretching, so it'll give you that benefit as well.

    The act of massaging daily promotes thickening of the lobes; cream or oil used is just personal preference.

    I 2nd what she has said here, I have tried many oils and creams as I have been stretching a little over 2yrs now. It really is a personal choice. I have tried emu oil and found it too thick for my liking and I perfer coconut oil but there are others who swear by holey butter.
