Tender Ear?

Forum rules

by hanbanana124 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 8:53 pm

I've had my 10g plugs in for a month now with no problems. I've been massaging them, and been taking them out in the shower and occasionally throughout the day. A few days ago my right ear began to feel irritated. It's not red, but it stings a tiny bit. Is there anything I can do to make it go away? Or is this something that will eventually pass?

Take a break from the oil massages and try doing warm sea salt soaks 2-3 times a day and try not to mess with it much that should help GOOD LUCK :twisted:

It may be that you massaged them too vigorously. I agree, take a break from that. Also make sure you are not wearing any materials you could be having a reaction to.

It's pretty common to have a 'difficult' ear-most of the time meaning that one stretches more easily than the other,but that being said,I don't see why it wouldn't also mean that since the one doesn't stretch as easily,it may therefore get irritated more easily.But a couple days of soaking it in warm salt water & it should clear up fairly quickly :)
