Again, do not mess around with the area until it has completely healed. Treat it like a wound that needs time to heal. Around 7-10 days you should start to see some inprovement. Then when there is no more oozing or bleeding you will be able to change the ring.

You should wait until the 'wound' has completely healed with no oozing or bleeding and when the scab has fallen off.
