    Default Quick swelling question.

    On Monday I got another foreward helix. I know swelling is normal and so is pain. When I look in the mirror I cant really tell that its swollen but when I clean the area I can then feel that its swollen. I haven't had any type of discharge or crust build up. My upper ear in general hurts and is sore. I have no wiggle room with the post. It doesn't feel tight but when cleaning the area it throbs. It's also in an area when when certain facial muscles are used it hurts. I was stupid and didnt start taking Ibuprofen but should I be worried because of the swelling and no wiggle room
    Or am I being paranoid again regarding the piercing. It hurts even more then the vertical industrial but it's been steady pain since the original piercing on Monday. I'm just worried that any fluid cant get out because of the swelling and cause issues since my piercer is over an hour away. Or got any tip on how to reduce swelling.

    It sounds fine and totally normal. Cold compresses and ibuprofen should help.
