Body Piercing

Your industrial piercing is bleeding from no obvious signs of trauma including while sleeping how much bleeding is 'normal' and should you always clean the clotted blood right away?

Bleeding is due to the small vessels in the ear cartilage having been cut. Partly due to the piercer not looking at the cartilage piercing carefully enough to avoid damaging the vessels structures. Bleeding will occur with all cartilage piercings, how much depends on the location of the vessels.

Don't clear the clots away from the piercing (this is the bodies way of plugging the leak) allowing the clots to stay for 24 hours will allow the body to close the damaged vessels from the inside out. Washing the piercing under running water will rinse the clots away and not irritate the piercing thus preventing the piercing from bleeding again. The bleeding should ease within 24 ~ 48 hours.

Well what did you do to it? Look surface piercings are the hardest piercings to take care of and protect from snagging and out side irritation. There are various reasons why your piercing would bleed, it could be still healing, snagged or hooked when you were sleeping. unless you are covering it at night with a bandage the piercing will keep bleeding until it heals to a point where irritation is no longer and issue.

If the pain of sleeping on it is tolerable then it should be ok to sleep on it.

No, do not remove the jewelry at all. It can be difficult to get the jewelry back in a new piercing, plus you could cause a rip or tear in the piercing site if you try and have trouble with it.

The answers I have read have said that the problem isn't the piercing but the after care. They have said that it can take up a year or more to heal and sleeping and long hair can be a big problem. Some have suggested just to have two piercings and no bar because that was what caused all the problems.

Yes. Both sleeping and eating are basic human needs, and depriving yourself of either can have serious consequences, including death.

It would be very unusual for a sleeping pill to cause a seizure, however, if you do have epilepsy, you should consult your doctor about any medication that you take, including sleeping pills, in case their is some negative interaction with your anti-epileptic medication.

I had my belly pierced last year and it can realy hurt when you have catched it, espesualy a fresh piercing, basicly what i did was fold up some tissue paper make sure that it is big enough to cover your belly button. Then you will need a roll of plasters, you can get this from any chemist. you then stick the tissue paper over the belly piercing and stick it on with the tape. Hope this works xx

Redness around the top exit point of the piercing is not uncommon, this area is more subject to irritation from sleeping, clothing and the day to day encounters surface tissue would be subjected to. Now if the tissue is swollen or distended and the redness is not localized to the close area of the piercing exit point and extends further than the piercing, chances are good you are reacting to the aftercare solution or cleaner you have been provided. It would be a good idea to go back and see your piercer and let he/she have a look at the piercing to ensure it's healing properly (there should be no charge for this service from the studio that did the piercing).

It might be a little sore/irritated if you hit it while sleeping or if you sleep on your stomach. Just soak it in warm water to help with any swelling/pain.

I would suggest not sleeping on your stomach wearing tight shirts, or pants that are too high. Since you probably have a ring piercing than it would definitely be more noticeable if its leaning to one side, but when you switch it for a barbell it wont matter. But if it's really bothering you then try leaning the piercing down on the opposite side, that's what i did for mine and now its fine, it's probably just been leaning to one side to much.

You will see symptoms, if there are remaining after a birth. Bleeding, excessive sleeping, or other changes in attitude.. If you are worried, take the cat to the vet to get spayed and mention this question to them.

Sleeping can be an adjective, depending on the context -- These are my sleeping clothes.

There is no pronoun in the sentence, "The cat is sleeping."A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun in a sentence; for example:It is sleeping.He is sleeping.She is sleeping.
