    It's lymph - new piercings secrete a fluid called lymph. It dries and sticks the piercing and jewellery. It's totally normal, so you just soak it off with some salt water (1/4 of a teaspoon to 1 mug of boiling water).

    Yup totally normal, happened to mine, and ears slightly..

    They tell you to wash it in shower/bath and move it slightly while cleaning it

    When I had mine done they gave me this special liquid soap.. if you have that use it every time you wash, or just use normal soap and water
