    Default Old stretched lobes suddenly swollen and oozing

    My ears have been at 14mm for months, maybe even years, like literally a really good amount of time. I bought some woooden plugs a while ago (from a reputable stockist) and although I wore them fine when I first bought them I wore them at the start of this week and they got quite itchy and a bit sore so I took them out and put my glass ones back in (I usually wear stone, glass or wood). Now it’s 3 days later and they’re swollen, itchy and constantly leaking lymph. No pain at all, but so much lymph they are always ‘wet’ and I don’t know how to fix it.

    Have been taking ibuprofen and antihistamines, icing them, cleaning them in the shower with just water and with saline spray after the shower, makes no difference.

    Advice please!

    Try leaving them alone to heal, sounds like they had a reaction to the wood. Rinse in the shower and leave.
