    Without seeing it it's hard to know what's going on. If the lobe is irritated then it would be best to forego any jewellery and let it heal naturally and stretch back up (if it's shrunk) over a slow pace. If it's looking too thin then you may want to visit a good piercer who can examine you in person and let you know the best course of action.

    I'd let it heal for a good month or two and take it from there. Go see your piercer as well who can assess you in person and give you some advice.

    Hey sad_satan,
    Spoke with a guy I know who is at 3/4" (19mm) and his lobes are pretty thin. He doesn't get on with jojoba so he uses emu oil and massages for 5mins a night. If he gets irritation then he leaves them out for a couple of weeks and drops down usually to 5/8" (16mm) in that time. He then stretches again over a couple of months.
    I don't know if thats normal as I'm nowhere near that gauge personally.

    Like Boo says, give them time and maybe have it checked by a pro.

    Hope it settles back down for you soon.
