    Default Microdermal Problems

    I've had three wrist microdermals for about 4 months now and everything's been fine with them and they've healed really well. For the last couple of weeks though I've had constant redness around the highest of the dermals and it's driving me crazy. There's no swelling or pain and only a tiny bit of lymphing a couple of weeks ago. Whatever I try though the redness just won't go away and I think there might also be a tiny bump under the gem as the post has gone ever so slightly crooked.

    I've already tried chamomile compresses and vitamin E oil but these don't seem to be helping. Can anyone advise of anything else I should try. If would help I can try adding a picture but apart from the skin being red there's nothing really to see

    Hot dry compress and then squeeze around the area. I've had this same problem with mine and it usually resulted in a lot of lymph/sebum coming out and them settling down.

    Thanks Hazel. I've doing hot compresses using a chamomile teabag, is this ok or should I be doing something different?

    Yeah as long as it's not being soaked as such.

    I always used a homemade hot compress on mine. I got some uncooked rice and put it in a clean sock and heated it in the microwave. I found they work better for me than chamomile teabags.

    Good idea! I use a lavender pillow thing that you put in the microwave

    Thanks for the advice, I have a lavender cushion I could heat up, nothing seems to be helping atm so anything's worth a try. I'm sick of people asking if it's infected when it's just a bit red!!
