I GOT MY NIPS PIERCED!!!!

Just kidding. 

I got my rook pierced about a week ago, I just wanted to make sure that it's normal that it's throbbing and red? Of course it's normal to hurt because it's healing but the throbbing and it also feels tight, does that make sense? 


Thanks!

I would say no, but I don't have mine done so I can't be too sure.

But throbbing and red a week later sounds like infection

Have you been cleaning it like you need to? If not go talk to the person that pierced you. You maybe infected.

I've been cleaning it twice a day, with sea salt and anti-bacterial soap.

Anything in that area can get infected easily and take longer to heal.just keep up with cleaning it and moving it, also make sure the bar doesn't get to tight.

How can I loosen it? My ear is swollen because of the piercing and it feels really tight.

Totally normal with any cartilage piercing. It sure is beautiful! It's one I'm considering.
