My piercings got infected!

:iconexoticjackal:
I'd had the stupid things for three months, and they kept getting mildly infected, and always were fixed after I used some soap and hot water for a few days. This time though, it isn't going away. And I've got a ball of something in my ear, I can feel it when I touch the ear it's in, it's not normal, because it's not in the other ear.
And this sucks, because it hurts to have my earrings in, so I took them out, it hurts to lay down on that side, because that ear that's badly infected gets pushed on.
:icontableflipplz:
This is the third freaking time my ears have gotten infected, and I was wearing good earrings too.:grump:

I have the same problem, well with the thing IN the ear. Mine is because I got them pierced crooked, was that maybe it? If not, go to your doctor or back to the piercer about it?

Good, is it getting better?

Not yet, I don't have them, because my mom's not going anywhere today, so just like always, I'm forced to not get medication I need until it's convenient for HER. But I start them probably day after tomorrow. :stare: God I hate not being able to drive.

If there was a magic cure to CP/Autism I'd take it. Cuz currently I'm just SOL and have two different disorders that fuck with my motor skills. Making driving nearly impossible.

:c Aww. I don't have any disorders that make it so I can't drive, luckily. But hopefully you'll get your meds soon.

1. talk to your piercer
2. make sure you're washing your piercing area and jewelery before you put it in and from time to time while it's in (I'm a germ freak, but I washed all my piercings once a week just to keep them clean, bacteria and germs can get in them even while they're in)
3. if it's not healing completely it could be because you're tearing it before it heals causing pretty much a continuous open wound.
4. make sure you're using good jewelery. sterling silver, gold (for most people), etc. Not nickle, I don't know why but a lot of people have a problem with nickle.
