Thread: Industrial bump? Infection?

  1. #1

    Default Industrial bump? Infection?

    Recently went to the doctor and got antibiotic cream for an infection in my lobe that lead to a huge blister, now one side of my industrial is doing the same (lobes were done 6 months ago, industrial at 3 months ago)

    I think this was triggered by sleeping in a rather unclean cheap hotel room lately. What should I do about my industrial? The blister on my lobe popped while I was applying the antibiotic cream I was prescribed (I didn't apply any force, it just burst while I was moving my ear) and has since stopped bleeding or leaking anything at all. It no longer hurts and is no longer red. What should I do about my industrial?

    From what you are speaking about, it might just be healing, but yes, go and see a piercer.

    Anyway, when you travel and you don't know the hygiene of the place where you'll be sleeping in, it's always good to have either a small clean towel to put over the pillow, or even a small travel pillow with a "hole" in the middle, so your head can rest, but not on your piercings.
    A beginner really

    Right ear: two lobes, helix and daith
    Left ear: three lobes and tragus
    Nose: septum
