Dont Worry You Need To Head Down To Your Nearest Piercing Parlor And Get Yourself Some Ear Care Antiseptic, Your Ears Are Not Infected All Ear Piercings Hurt For The First Few Days, Weeks Even Months, Just Remember To Keep It Clean.

Answerit maybe be that your ear is swollen and is really tight on the piercing or that your skin is too dry and is sticking to your piercing as you turn it. if they're swollen it may be a sign of infection or it could just be part of the healing process -- i can't tell you without seeing it, so you'll have to determine for yourself. if the skin is red and purple and's probably in infection. try washing them in the shower using an antibacterial hand soap. i suggest the softsoap brand, it's my favourite. I've also heard that using a warm salt water wash will help with swelling, healing or infection related. odds are, if it's infected there's puss in there and that, along with swollen blood vessels, is putting too much pressure on the jewelry for you to turn it without pain. have you tried using a lubricant? sometimes the skin is just too dry and it sticks to the jewelry. i hope there's something here that'll help... AnswerThis happened to my most recent cartilage piercing, i have three by the way. if it is dark colored, almost purple, put sea salt in as hot of water as you can stand, let it dissolve, put 5 or 6 cotton balls in the water. Take each cotton ball and hold it over the earring (fold it over your ear) and hold it there until it gets the slightest bit cold. do that two times a day and it will clear right up

How much is it to get your cartilage pierced at Claires?

You should NOT get your cartilage pierced at any other place aside from a tattoo parlor. No piercings should be done without a hollow needle as a regular needle will push the skin and cartilage that is being pierced to the back of your ear causing infection, swelling, and an all out gross looking ear. I highly suggest that you go to a tattoo parlor and get it done professionally. It will cost anywhere from10-40 dollars depending on where you go and if you have an earring to go in it. The earring should be steel as it is hypoallergenic. Sources: I'm a piercer and I have a lot of experience and I have many piercings including my cartilage. Hope this helps. --------------------------------------------------- Improved answer: I dont understand why everyone says not to get it done at Claire's. I got my cartilage done at Claire's and it was PERFECTLY FINE. It was $33 for the earring, piercing, and ear cleaner fluid. My ear did NOT get infected and nothing bad happened at all. Personally tattoo parlors are pretty scary.... Everyone at Claire's are nice and friendly Sources: Got my cartilage pierced at Claire's

Which part of the synovial joint deteriorates in osteoarthritis?

The first sign of osteoarthritis is the deterioration of synovial cartilage. When the cartilage deteriorates, bones may start rubbing against each other causing severe pain. Further deterioration of the joint causes the synovium (joint lining) to become inflamed, causing additional pain. The joint lining tries to fix this problem by producing more synovial fluid, the slick watery substance that lubricates and nourishes the cartilage. However, often the resulting additional synovial fluid will end up in the joint space, causing swelling. This is the beginning of osteoarthritis. Without effective treatment, eventually, most of your cartilage will deteriorate and a bone on bone situation will occur, causing the debilitating pain associated with osteoarthritis.

Which is better a pericing gun or needle for a second hole?

As you progress in your piercings from the lobe up the ear I would recommend getting the second and consecutive holes done by needle piercing in the hands of a professional body piercer. See inside the lobe moving up the ear there is a fine feather line of cartilage which gets thicker and denser as you progress up the ear, at some point you will need to start over gauge piercing to ensure the piercings will heal correctly without discomfort from the cartilage inside the tissue.
