    How old is the piercing?

    Again, follow your piercers advice and it should settle in time. Also please don't spam the forum again, there's plenty of ways to get your post count up without doing that. The posting 10 times thing is to prevent spammers coming on and posting links, it's not about fair/not fair.

    Almost 9 weeks old. Under normal circumstances it's the only part of either of the piercings which hurts any more.
    Current:
    - Ear lobes x2 (right) and x1 (left)
    - Tunnel (left lobe) 10mm
    - Navel
    - Helix (right)
    - A half-rejected industrial (left)
    - Tragus (left)
    - Lip (left)
    - Nostril (right)
    - Conch (right)
    - Nipples (both!)
    - Septum

    Pending:
    - Rooks (both), in the distant future

    I wouldn't worry about it, bumps are common in early healing.

    I apologize :(

    I didn't mean to, I am just so worried about my piercing and can't seem to find the right answers. Once again, very sorry.

    It's ok!

    Give the bump time, they can be really annoying on nostril piercings, if using the H2Ocean doesn't seem to be helping after a week or so then I would suggest just leaving it alone to dry out.

    I had my tragus, forward helix and helix pierced 11 weeks ago, all with a titanium CBR (no idea on gauge how do i find this out??) I have a bump on the inside of my tragus it seems to come and go. I clean it once a day and still do sea salt soaks after 11 weeks. It will be really sore fore a few days then the soreness will go and then become sore again after a few days. This has been on off for a while now. One also appeared on my helix but that seems to have gone down again. The tragus in particular also still gets very crusted up, the others do to but less so.

    Any suggestions on getting rid or should I just keep on with the sea salt soaks and cleaning once a day? I have read about using tea tree oil, but is this too harsh on 11 week old piercing?

    Thanks in advance for the advice

    go to a good piercer and get the rings changed out for bars. Don't use TTO, too harsh.

    Thanks

    I'll just keep up the sea salt soaks and cleans then

    I was planning to ask in Vivid Ink in Walsall on Saturday as I'll be down that way. I went in a few weeks ago to Rude in Leeds (as I was passing) and they said to wait a while to change them??

    I wanted CBRs in initially as I am nervous of getting my hair caught (long half way down my back) round the bars. Also I know with the helix I had done about 20 years ago I cant sleep with a stud in (not that I can sleep on these yet).
