    Unhappy industrail piercing 9 days old need advice

    The actual piercing is fine but the skin behind my bar is getting sore and scabby is there anything I can do to help it heal

    Also my bottom hole looks like it migrated forward a littke is this normal is it just settling down? It started to moved a couple of days after piercing and does not seem to have moved since I hope its not rejecting I love it its not red or sore

    Post a pic so we can see the placement.

    What's the bar made from?
    Do you sleep on it/play with it?
    How are you looking after it?

    I cant post a picture but just looking at it not looks fine not red or swollen just a bit crusty as its healing. I only touch it when im cleaning it which I do sea salt soaks twice a day I have not slept on it and im wearing the cloth headbands so my hair doesnt touch it and my bar is titanium but its a really long one to allow for swelling im to go back next week for a smaller bar

    How much salt are you putting in your SSS and are you rinsing with plain water afterwards?

    You're using way way too much salt which is causing the irritation, use 250ml water to 1/4tsp sea salt and rinse after soaking.
