    Default Should i keep my helix and how will i be able to

    Hello,
    Since august 2018 i've got my helix and i really like it.
    Only issue i'm having is that its a little thick on the back side.
    I think it's a bit irritated or maybe an infection, so i will have to keep it clean using seasalt and hot water.
    Tho i've recently aquired a new job but they don't allow piercings.
    Now i've thought about a restrainer. But if not i'd have to insert my helix every time after work which wont help thr healing process.
    Now i'm not even sure if getting it in and out of your ear everyday is even a good idea..
    Any tips or tricks i could use to help it heal and still be able to go to work?

    Btw, my job will only be for 3 months and it's not allowed because of hygenical reasons

    If it's a hygiene thing then you'll have to remove it.

    Maybe get it repierced after?

    No, it won't do anything.

    It doesn't sound infected to me. Signs of infection are extreme pain, excessive swelling, deep throbbing/aching, hot to the touch, oozing green/brown smelly pus, bleeding, red streaks from the piercing site.
