    Nice! I have both sides done. I got them done a year apart. I don't recall ever having a problem with itching, but mostly just got those dreaded bumps :[

    Day 14

    Yesterday, I found some crusties at the front of the piercing. It was a bit red last night, but that was probably me being a bit too rough with the cotton bud. Finally it's showing the signs of starting to heal. It's a bit tender at the back but nothing too distracting or sore.

    Hopefully it will continue to act like this.

    My helix has to be the worst one for itching. That constant sensation and you can't do anything to make it better! It's over 5 months old and it still randomly starts to itch!

    Haven't posted anything in this in a month!

    Conch was really well behaved and I had nothing to report on it.
    However, On Sunday it was unusually sore. I took a photo of the back and I seemed to develop hypertrophic scarring. I thought I got lucky with this piercing! Apparently not!

    Here's photos of what it looked like on Sunday.

    My conches have all done this, they take a while to go away but they will. Don't change the jewellery or play with it too much and it will be fine.

    Mine is less then 2 weeks old and I have just used water in the shower. Its hasn't liked saline so I have left it. I am yet to survive a hair appointment in the next 2 weeks. I will be alerting them so they are careful not to knock the bar when they are washing my hair or cutting it!!!

    Haven't updated as I've been very busy!

    Almost 5 months old now. And it now in it's 'very crusty' stage. My cartilage piercings always have done this around the same time. What's not helping it that I'm a picker! I know it doesn't help but when I see crusties I have to remove them

    I have a bump on the back but really have just been LITHA-ing it.
    I'm considering changing it to bioplast, like I've done with most of my other piercings.
