    Default Helix issue!

    Hi there, I would like some advice!


    I got my helix pierced about 3 weeks ago and I've been soaking it 2x a day etc, its been fine since then.


    But about a week and a half a go a small bump appeared on the back. It didnt pus, leak or cause pain. Since then it started to become tender and fill up with blood. It sometimes sweated out blood, but no pus or rash, or heat in the area. And my cartilage became more thicker/swollen.


    Tonight I accidentally scratched it whilst cleaning it and it bled quite a bit. I took a look at it once cleaning all the blood off and it seems that a bit on cartilage or hard skin is poking out of it. No pus so far. Just a bit tender and very swollen, that my cartilage feels 10x thicker than normal and a glowing feel.


    I have no idea what it could be or what I have done! Besides from scratching it.

    it was pierced with a needle and the barbell is titanium.
