I've been using essential oils for years and there are very few I'll use undiluted on my skin.
    It's the only thing that's helped reduce my daith bump but note taken! I'll stop using it now. It has irritated the other ones anyway.


    Day 6
    Pain seems to have almost gone today. No ibuprofens needed and only one SSS today instead of two.

    Today a huge amount of lymph came out of the bottom one on both the front and back.
    The top one only from the back.

    Interested to see how this all goes.

    In all honesty a piercing shouldn't be causing that amount of pain anyway.
    I know, not on the piercing but around it about 5mm away from the piercing.

    I think I experienced that amount of pain due to the allergic reaction (before I knew that's what it was). Now I have little pain but still once in a while use the gel for swelling. But if its not recommended I wont recommended

    I had my tfh done eight months ago and it's still healing... but from my experience, I can tell you it's better to clean twice than once.

    (I clean it when i wake up and after i take a shower)
    Current body mods:

    0g lobes (first) + 16g second lobes on both and third lobe on right
    triple forward helix on right
    inner conch on my right
    tragus on left
    ‒ one cartilage on my left
    ‒ both nipples

    iris flower on my right ribcage/belly area
    lyric tattoo on my left ribcage
    ‒ Pisces sign with genderfluid colourations

    Getting it done



    Planned in the "near" future
    ‒ spiderbites


    Planned in the "not-so-near" future


    seraph wings with a heart 'tramp stamp'

    Day 27 - (nearly one month since piercings)

    After my last update there was 2 days where my piercings were extremely crusty.
    Like, so thickly engulfed with crust and lymph you couldn't see any jewellery whatsoever from both the front and back.

    Then they went back to normal; piercings were causing no issues anymore - didn't hurt and looked to be healing quite well.
    I continued with SSS for maybe another few days up until about day 10 and then stopped doing them and LITHA.

    A few days ago, to my dismay, I discovered a bump to have formed on the top piercing.
    I have been sleeping on them which I can't seem to help - even with a travel pillow.

    My emu oil has just come in the mail so I tried that out today on that and my extremely irritated daith.
    Might post photos of both tomorrow if I get time.
