Daith Pierced Won’t Heal
Can you please help me I have my daith pierced but it won’t heal, I have tried tea tree oil and wee salt, but I don’t know what to do
There are a couple of things I can say. First of all, I would recommend going to a reputable piercer in your area and communicating with them about the issues you may be experiencing.
However, one thing I will say is that I wouldn’t suggest using tea tree oil to get rid of that bump. I know it’s the internet’s go-to remedy, but it’s a little bit too harsh for the healing process of a piercing, especially any oils that you wouldn’t necessarily want on a piercing that is still healing.

How To Fix Stretched Ear Piercing?
Now, moving on to our next question about piercings.
Can you use lotion on your ears while stretching your ears? I’m about to start and that’s all I have, I really wanna know before I do so.
It’s a great question about stretching. Instead of using lotion, you will want to use some sort of vitamin E oil. To keep it short, I’m sure there are plenty of stretching guides available elsewhere, but for now, I’ll keep it brief: vitamin E oil is the way to go.
What Should I Be Cautious Of With A Helix Piercing?
And now, let’s address question about piercings number three:
I’ll be honest I plan on getting a triple helix done what should I be cautious of?
What should you be cautious of with a helix piercing? Hair is going to be the biggest concern.
You need to ensure that your hair is not getting tangled in it as much as possible. Also, you should avoid sleeping on the piercing, as it could lead to discomfort and potential issues.
Fortunately, there are piercing pillows available nowadays, providing a solution for avoiding sleeping on the piercing. Additionally, when it comes to shampoos and conditioners, I always recommend letting some warm water run over the piercing at the end of your shower. This helps remove any residue from shampoos and conditioners and also cleans off any crusties, without using a Q-tip.
Can I Get A Piercing When Pregnant?
Moving on to our fourth piercing question: Can you get a piercing when pregnant?
I wouldn’t recommend it at all, as there is a small risk of infection. If an infection were to occur, it could potentially spread through your bloodstream and affect your baby. This is, of course, the last thing you’d want to happen when you’re pregnant. So, in short, no, I wouldn’t recommend it, unfortunately.
When Can I Change My Belly Button Ring?
My friend going to get her belly button pierced next month. When can she change her belly button ring?
Let’s talk about changing jewelry for belly piercings. It’s generally advisable to wait about nine months from the time you got pierced. However, keep in mind that the healing process can vary from person to person.
So, whether you can change it after those nine months depends on how well you’ve been taking care of it and how your body has been responding. To determine if it’s the right time for a change, I recommend consulting a trusted and reputable piercer in your area.
Concerns About Piercing Infections
Moving on to our next piercing question, addressing concerns about infections.
Infections with piercings are fortunately quite rare. If you suspect an infection, it’s best to visit a trusted piercer to have it examined and confirm if it’s truly an infection. If it is indeed an infection, seek medical attention promptly and consider getting antibiotics. It’s important not to remove the jewelry on your own in this case.
When Can I Switch My Septum Piercing?
Lastly, address the idea of switching to a different piece of jewelry for your septum piercing.
If my helix is infected and I got it 2 weeks ago, is it okay to take the piercing it out to clean and take out pus and put it back on right after?
Before making the switch, ensure that your septum is fully healed to avoid any irritation. As for ring size, as long as there’s a small gap, it should be fine. However, if it’s fully healed, be mindful not to put too much pressure on the area.
