Basically just a round bump, inside my earlobe, located directly underneath the pincher. (I know, I'm trying to get it in a better state before fooling with the jewelry.) Other than the bump which makes my earlobe larger than the other, everything's back to normal size. Woke up this morning with far less crusties, but still there all the same. Already got one salt soak done today, so I'm just hoping they're doing their job for sure. Chances are later today I'll hold a hot rag up to it; no teabags but hopefully it will help as well.
@Kaiser, it may very well be. If you saw earlier in the thread I have every intention of removing the pinchers and placing the plugs, but at the moment I can't get them out, so when I can I will definitely be doing that.
@apollo, they have definitely been a great help. I was having such a freakout when I woke up with it but I'm sticking to the soaking regimen and seeing improvement. I appreciate everyone who has and continues to contribute, you guys are awesome.
