However I still require it to be flipped up mostly during the day to hide it, it seems to be coping well with this abuse at present !
    You need to do what's right for you when it comes to aftercare.

    Same with soaks, I don't do them, haven't for years, I don't feel the idea of my piercing sitting in murky sea salt is best for it and it makes my healing piercings swell and sometimes get irritated. Yet for some it works wonders! It's why the general consensus with organisations like the APP/UKAPP is leave alone if you can, warm or cool compresses and gentle wiping/cleaning if needed and do what's best for you. After all, you know your body best.

    Day 9,

    Just a couple of very small crusties this morning at clean up time, after wiping them away with a cotton bud dipped in SSS It was time to once again flip it up out of the way for the day. Think I'm beginning to get the hang of this at last as it seemed easier this morning !

    Day 10,

    Same again this morning just a couple of crusties each side, I'm beginning to wonder if it's the sea salt reforming as crystals ? I might just try boiled warm water cleaning from now on ?

    I ordered some emu oil the other day to rub onto my feet & legs to see if it will help with some issues I'm currently having, I was wondering about putting some on my septum jewellery as I have seen others posts suggesting it also has healing properties ? Has anyone had any experience of this ?

    I use emu oil all the time. I like it. I can't comment on healing as I'd have to have 2 piercings done at the same time in the same place, use it on one and not on the other to see if it helps. I prefer it above things like soaks though.

    Day 11, am.

    So this morning clean up was using just plain old boiled water after it cooled down of course, there were no crusties as such this morning. I did apply some Emu oil to the jewelry at last nights clean up, so initial observations are that perhaps the Emu oil has prevented any crusties from forming ? Or perhaps coincidentally it was just time for them to stop ?

    This is my 1st experience of Emu oil, but it will be interesting to see how things go !

    Day 12,

    As I went away last night & stayed with friends who have young children I left my piercing flipped up most of yesterday & all of today so far, so it remained flipped up & uncleaned ! Later tonight I will see how it has survived, yesterday when I flipped it up I put Emu oil on it for the 1st time !
