    So I got my cartilage done in august and within a week I had a really nasty infection and then another in November. But i know it's not infected now it just constantly feels bruised when someone touches it. Also i found out today that a lot of people that go to the place i went to have some issues so i don't really know how to help it

    I would recommend going to a different piercer and asking them to take a look. It could be that you're allergic to the jewellery they put in. Do you know what material it's made out of? Unless it's titanium, you may be reacting to a small amount of nickel in it. The majority of piercers use titanium, but some do still use steel (which I can't use)
