Hi eveyone. So I got my tragus pierced 5 weeks ago and i think it is healing up pretty well.... the swelling has gone down, no redness/pain and it looks good! the only thing is, there is a little dot above it and i think thats where the piercing use to be.. it is not noticable until after I do a saline soak on it and thats when the hole looks a little bigger than usual and the mark above it is more noticable; however, when it hasnt been cleaned for a few hours it looks great and you cant even notice it... I am confused! I hope it is not rejecting beccause I LOVEEE my piercing and really dont wanna take it out...
Help please!!!

I'm not a pro, but I'm sure the pros on here will be able to help better if you post a picture.

A picture would definitely help but it sounds like you are just still healing. Keep up with your soaks as your piercing is still healing after only 5 weeks. I small amount of redness around your piercing is not out of the ordinary at this stage but since I cant see it I cant say for sure. So like I said, keep up with your aftercare and wait a few more weeks and see where you're at.

Tragus piercings aren't that likely to reject and yours is probably just doing what a tragus does. Soaking will make a piercing hole look bigger for a short, migrating or not. It will also annoy a piercing if you do it too often or too strong, which might explain it being cranky for a bit afterward. Cartilage piercings sometimes get bumps like that too... it's not that weird. If you're worried go see your piercer about it.

Tragus migration/rejection is a pretty common problem when it's not pierced correctly. If you have a picture, it would be super helpful.
