    Default How to heal removed piercing

    After a year's worth of struggles, I've decided to remove my triple heix piercing. I need advice on how to have my ear heal with minimal scarring. Any advice is appreciated.

    Do one final SSS, rinse it in the shower and leave it alone to heal. Just follow normal bodily hygiene.

    When it's healed, any scarring can be minimised by massaging with a natural oil eg jojoba, coconut, emu oil, vitamin E oil, etc etc.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue

    Do I keep any neosporin on it to aid in the healing process?

    Not to hijack this, but question: if you remove a piercing then decide you want it again, is it best to get it re-pierced in the exact same place or "over" a bit? Hopefully this makes sense...

    The only repierce I've has was in the same place (it was actually under/deeper, but has essentially migrated back into the position of the first piercing). As Hazel said depends on how well you heal, how much damage was there in the first place, anatomy, etc. Your piercer would be able to assess you. =)
