i recently stretched to 0g and put in 0g plugs, a couple days after i put them in and the soreness went away my ears started peeling like what happens after you get sunburned. ive been doing sea salt soaks daily with the proper ratio of salt to water and ive been applying vitamin e oil daily, id really like this to go away so i can heal and stretch in the future. advice is greatly appreciated

Maybe I'm wrong but if its not a fresh piercing or there is no infection I don't see any reason for you to be doing sea salt soaks. So if I were you I would stop doing them and just massaging daily with the vitamin E oil and it will probably go away. It could also be some sort of reaction to the plug your wearing.

try shea butter. its very moisturizing cuz i get really dry skin (salt will dry ur skin like a mofo sometimes) and thats what i use b/c my ears flake in the winter if i dont. sounds like ur ears get like my winter ears and the shea butter cures the problem within a couple days for me.
