    Default Helix problem!

    I will appreciate any advice or help.
    I got my helix pierced like 4 and a half months ago. After a few weeks I noticed that I had a bump on the back and the front of the piercing. I have been cleaning it everyday twice a day with the salty water solution, however it did not go away. I tried using alo vera gel, but it didn't do anything. I read that tea tree oil helps, so I tried that, but once again I saw no changes. I spoke to my piercer and he told me to use Camille tea on it, so I did and it was helping at the start, however later on it just made it very angry and it got so big! Then I just cleaned it off with the salty water and then it popped and there was blood coming out of it. I once again went back to my piercer, and all he said was that it is healing and give it time. I was then advised by my friend to go to the doctors and ask for antibiotics, I did and after using for a few days the back bump went away. After that no more changes occurred during that week while I took the antibiotics. I was then doing more researched and read that changing the jewellery could help, however my piercer just said that it won't make a difference. I spoke to more people who had the same problem as me and they suggested hydrogen peroxide. I have diluted it with water, so now I have a mixture of one cap hydrogen peroxide and 10 caps of water solution. No changes are really happening once again. Any advice please?

    Np, less is more sometimes. Helices can take a good year to settle and heal.
