Infected helix piercing Watch
I've had my helix pierced for about 8 months and it still really hurts to lie on it, it hurts to move and has a small bump on it. It's getting to the stage where I'm thinking of giving up and taking it out as I have tiredness all wayang to get rid of the infection. I am considering changing the piercing and seeing if it makes a difference but not sure if it's a good idea with it being infected! Any advice? Other than sea solution or antibiotics as I have tried most things and seen my doctor.
I've had a helix piercing for about 10 years and sometimes it still gets very tender. I used to have a bump there too but it's gone now. What kind of jewelry do you have in it?
Without having a look its pretty much impossible to give you proper advice, hencr the best anyone can say is go to well respected piercer and ask their opinion. There are a number of things that may help the piercing heal quicker but, again, cant be done veey accurately without being able to have a good look.
