Can't tell if I have a blowout HELP

Discuss all things ear stretching

I had went to sleep with my 4g tapers in ( which I have had in for about 2 weeks now) one had fell out so I had grabbed it washed it off and pushed it into my ear, it stopped 3/4 of the way through so I put a small amount of force into it and I heard a rip, my ear started bleeding and there is about half of the inner skin hanging out of the back, my other ear was just fine. I do not have any single flare plugs that I am able to put into my ear what should I do?!?

Definitely sounds like a blowout, my friend. The best thing to do would probably be to leave jewelry out or maybe put in a 6g or 8g and do sea salt soaks twice a day until it heals up. Also, in the future, try not to actually wear tapers to keep this sort of thing from happening again, and if you're ever trying to put jewelry in and feel any resistance in doing so, stop and just stay at a smaller size for a bit.
