Alright so i posted in here about a month ago got one reply and wasn't very helpful. My ears were in pain and shrunk I was at 1 inch and decided to just put in one size smaller and it went in my ear no problem. It's been about 5 days since I went down. My ear is very sore and slightly red I've been soaking them with salt water and putting jojoba oil on. I read that you should leave in your gauges until it heals. But then again I've read different things saying otherwise.
So my question is should I leave them in and keep soaking and rubbing oil around them until healed? There is little puss (murky white color) and no bleeding. Just swollen and red and the puss.
My ear had white puss ooze out of it about 5 years ago and it didn't hurt and went away in a few days and I'm not sure if it's the same ear that is having problems now..
I don't have health insurance currently so seeing a doctor is out of my hands. Maybe a professional piercer?
Any advice at all would be awesome. Thank you.
