    I got my daith pierced by a professional 2 days ago. It is just now feeling sore and looks a little swollen. Is this normal?

      It is normal for a piercing to be swollen. Continue to monitor your piercing. You may find benefit in speaking with the person who pierced your ear. They may be able to give you advice. Have a great day, Lucca!

    I just got my daith piercing within the last 24 hours. The piercer had some trouble getting it through my ear and I’ve been experiencing some soreness. I’ve washed it with mild, antibacterial soap, and cleared it with some saline solution (warm water and sea salt) is swelling normal within the first few days?

      Continue to monitor your experiences. Healing times may be different for different people. If it gets worse over the next few days, then remove it and allow your ear to heal. You can always get it pierced again. Continue to wash it and use whatever you feel comfortable using. An antibacterial would work best. Have a great day, D’Mari!

    I had a daith piercing done in January and I faithfully cleaned it twice a day for the first four months. It was doing so well that I thought it was healed and backed off on the cleaning regime. I ended up with an infection that went away with sea salt compresses. Now at 6 months, I am still cleaning it, and it is no longer red, swollen. However, the ear/cartilage has been very sore and tender. I am thinking about removing the jewelry and letting the piercing heal up. My question is – do I need to be concerned about removing the jewelry and “trapping” an infection in my ear? Or does the body naturally heal up anything after the jewelry is removed?

      It would be beneficial for you to remove the piercing and allow your body to heal. Your body will be able to heal better with it removed. Your body will not trap the infection. The infection will be more easily fought were you to remove it. Best of luck, Renee!

      It is possible that you have an infection. Continue to monitor your symptoms at this time. If you find that you would be benefited by speaking with a medical professional, then make an appointment. If your symptoms improve, then continue to monitor it. Best of luck, Lakisha!

      It is possible that you are experiencing an infection. Continue to monitor your experiences at this time. If you find that the pain continues or swelling increases, then remove your piercing. It is better to care for your potential infection than to keep your piercing in. Best of luck, Lila!

    I had my daith pierced over a year ago and had my jewelry changed out 3 days ago. I went to my piercer and had it changed out. It’s only been 3 days but my piercing is very tender. Is that normal? I purchased the jewelry from my piercer so it isn’t just a random piece from the internet. It’s quality stuff. I’ve been keeping it clean and my hands off of it. Maybe I’m just paranoid because it is my favorite piercing and I don’t want to have to take the earring out. I dang sure don’t want to have to get it re pierced later! That hurt so bad!! But it was worth it!

      Continue to monitor the experiences that you are having. If it remains tender for another week, then speak with your piercer about your concerns. If you becomes inflamed or infected, then take out your piercing. It is better to be safe than sorry. Even though it is not always pleasant, you can always get a piercing done a second time. Best of luck, Cat!

    I had my piercing done about 2-3 weeks ago and i am having less and less crusties on the piercing. Is it possible for it to heal really really quick? I once had a normal piercing done and it healed faster than average so I was wondering if it was going to be the same for my cartilage daith piercing.

      Everyone heals at a different speed. Different parts of the body may heal at different speeds as well. Continue to monitor the experiences that you are having at this time. As long as it continues to heal, you have nothing to worry about. Have a great day, Baylee!

      Your best option is to continue to attempt to keep it clean. Give it a few more days of cleaning and care. If you find that you are still experiencing unpleasant sensations at that time, then it would be wise of you to remove the piercing. Have a great day, Michelle!

    Is there a piercing that will help dizziness, nausea or feelings of unsteadiness?

      Piercings do not actually help with dizziness or nausea. Some people do eat ginger to help with nausea. Instead of resorting to a piercing, it may be a good idea to go to your doctor to get checked out and find out the cause of your symptoms. Certain conditions like anemia can cause some of these symptoms, and many have medical treatments available.
