    Default Helix bump

    Hi all,

    I've had my helix of my ear pierced for about 2 years now, with titanium and a suitable sized ring. No probs until the last couple of months; I've got a huge bump on both sides of the piercing now, even though I've had no trauma to it.

    I've tried sea salt soaks, saline applied with a cotton bud all to no avail.

    I really want to keep my piercing and get rid of these red bumps too.

    Any alternative suggestions, please?

    Thanks
    Lee

    Try getting a straight barbell fitted as rings/BCRs/curved barbells can turn and cause trauma without you knowing. If you know you are alright with camomile I recommend trying a camomile soak. Make it as you usually would as a tea and either hold the teabag to the piercing while warm or soak your ear in the cup. If that doesn't work a bit of tea tree oil should help, it smells strong but if you can get past that it should be okay to use, since you've had no issues before and it's not a new piercing.
