So I pierced my cartilage/helix by myself 5 days ago and it was very steril and safe

It didn’t hurt or ache for the first 3 days and now it hurts VERY much and it’s VERY swollen. I don’t sleep on it or anything and I clean it with a salt water solution everyday and TCP which is a liquid anticeptic 2 times a weeks is it normal for it to hurt and how long will it hurt for and when will it stop
I also do salt water soaks

Go to your GP immediately.

If that swelling calcifies prepare for permanent physical deformity.

I cannot because the other thread is in a different section in which I don't moderate
