i've been going naked since my piercer thought my lobe was looking a little weak in one spot (wasn't sure i completely agreed with him, but to be on the safe side...). been this way for about two months now, with daily massages using emu/vit e oil and palmer's stretch mark lotion- amazing stuff for ears btw.

so i decided i missed my plugs too much and i assumed they had shrunk down from 12mm to 8. tried to put in the 8 and it was so loose it just fell out. i was like ok, put in the 10mm, same thing happened. so i tried the 12 again. it's looser than it was before i went naked and i'm pretty sure it's gone up to 13 or 14. somehow, from massaging alone, wearing nothing, my lobe has thickened up AND gone up a size. has this happened to anyone? i'd expected it to have shrunk way down rather than loosen up. when i'm massaging i'm not tugging on it, just rubbing in the lotion/oil. it's definately cool, just unexpected.

Hey, i've had something similar happen to me before. You would think that the lobe would shrink due to not having any jewelry in it and the growth of new skin cells. I THINK it might be due to the freedom the ear has and the massging with V/E oil. It might actually help the ear fully relax and naturally stretch, but i'm not sure. I was at a very healthy 5/8th and decided i needed to thicken my ears a little. I left my ears free of and jewelry and used V/E oil once or twice a day. After about two weeks i went to put my jewelry back in and it just fell out of my ear. I went through a case where i keep all of my jewelry and found a pair a 3/4 that a friend had given to me. And what do you know. Like a glove. I've asked many proffesionals about this and they just say thats odd.
