swollen / bruised cartilage piercing watch

    • Thread Starter

    Got my cartilage done 6 days ago and for the last 4 it has been incredibly sore,swollen and red. I soak it throughout the day in Saline solution and clean it twice a day with TCP. How long will the swelling take to go down as I have work in two days and it will be very embarassing if it is still at its current size mad colour.

    I have an industrial piercing and mine didn’t eat infected
    But ibuprofen helps to bring down the swelling, keep cleaning it and don’t touch it too much )
