    The coloured balls won't have been PTFE, it only comes in white or black. They will have been acrylic which is toxic and brittle hence them breaking.

    Sounds just as bad for Mrs T too. Hope Mrs T's second lobe feels much better soon (My mum's second lobe is the same too). That is nice you look after Mrs T so much. Yes, my ears were doing not too bad. I knew that some would end up not very happy as they had to be all changed. When I went to see my piercer a couple of weeks ago to have them changed back she mentioned that people will start to come in with problems due to the sun being out.

    Oh, my word! Thank you for that Boo. I had a few left that are now going to go in the bin.

    I managed to buy quite few of the white ones before I had them changed back again. Some are in now as my piercings are not very happy they were changed (I expected it). I am sorted now if I ever end up back in Hospital.

    You're welcome. I'm wondering why any piercer would have that crap in their shop tbh. Sorry but it really is nasty stuff.

    We are now very much wondering this ourselves too.

    Since April I have been free of pain with my third lobe and then it started two days ago. It hurts so much but it actually looks fine. I have managed to put a bio plastic bar in it as it felt suffocated.
