I had my cartilage pierced two months ago and was told I can change it within 8weeks however when trying to change it , it is stuck the earring is still visible but it won’t unscrew as I can’t get anything on the back as it’s so swollen the women who pierced it said I can’t do anything go to a doctor but I feel I’m wasting their time , what can I do I want it out my ear as nothing is helping

My cartilage piercing was so hard to get out too and got infected, the jewellery they put in first is so much harder to take out! I had to go back to the piercing shop to get mine taken out, and they put a hoop in instead as it would be easier to remove and it wouldn't be tight so there was less chance of infection or swelling. If your piercing shop won't help you I recommend going to a different shop and explaining your situation to see if they'll help It's really best to go to a piercing professional rather than a doctor since they'll be much more experienced in that area.

Don't take it out. It's not healed. It takes 3-6 months to heal cartilage not 8 weeks.

It’s extremely swollen and painful which is why I tried to get it out 😊
