    Lightbulb changing to titanium jewerely for tragus piercing

    hey, i think i am allergic to the nickel in my current jewellery, and i have heard titanium is by far the best jewellery u can have for piercings as there's little to no nickel in it, and many other good things with titanium. would all this help get rid of a small bump i have on my tragus piercing, and overall promote better healing. i have had my tragus pierced for around 10 months, but have had no problems other then the bump, (no infections etc.) thanks so much

    Hi Jasonk1102

    Titanium is one of the best to use - well for me it is. I didn't know this until being a member on here that Titanium has diffent grades as some is not so good. I buy highly polished titanuim now-a-days in threadless Labret posts if I can. I have noticed a difference with my Tragus. My Conch has done really well with a highly polished titanium barbell too (The Labret post wouldn't work for me there as it keep being hit). Please go to a piercer and get it changed properly. Our piercer has no problem at all if you bring your own jewellery.

    Hey, yea i went back to my piercer and they put titanium labret. not sure on the length, but i think they said there is about 1mm of room front and back to move it back and forth a bit, i am hoping that is fine and not too short. i didn't want it too long anyway because i didn't want it to be knocked around too much, as i know that the jewellery moving around too much can cause irritation. and i have had my piercing for around 10 months anyway and i think it's fine to have a shorter piece of jewellery now right? because there is no pus or blood, discharge etc anymore since it is way past the initial day it was pierced. Thanks

    Yay, I'm glad you got it all sorted out, shorter is better so as not to irritate the healing fistula.
