    Default Taking out a rejection

    So my upper piercing of my helix-helix indystrial was getting rejected, so i took it out. My worries come from the fact that i had a 1.6mm jewellry, and a part of dead skin comed out (painless), and the size of it was about a 2.4mm (skin and barbelle). I am worried that there is some infection that gets in the cartillage, or that anyother problem may ocure.

    What should i do to avoid any complication? What can i do to minimize the scarring? And will I be able to repierce later on?

    If you have removed the piercing just keep it clean until healed and you can use vitamin e to try and help the scaring. You will find that you will have a littl bump in the helix , this will probably stay for ever, but the marks should go away. You could re pierce but it would have to be under or above the old one.
