    Posted: February/03/2015 at 10:48pm
So I've had my ears stretched at 5/8 for almost a year now. My left ear was always my problem ear, but today while examining it I noticed a little bump on the inside. As I wiped my finger across it this clear goo (I know, sounds gross) came out on my finger. I looked and the bump wasn't pussing. I went to try to pop it and very very very slight bleeding occurred and now my ear is irritated and slightly swollen and the bump has gotten bigger. I've just been wearing wooden plugs for a while and never had an issue. Thoughts? I'm getting worried!

sounds like a tear in the fistula or something, wood is porous so all that gross stuff is getting soaked up into the wood; wait til it calms down then rub it with vitamin e or emu oil. I'd personally take the jewlery out for a week for it to settle.

I've had the jewelry out since I discovered the bump. The irritation and sensitivity has gone down at this point but I don't feel like the bump has gone down at all.
