And i got it done with 3 of my friends and theirs is doing fine. When i first got it i was cleaning it with dial soap three times and day and then i got sea salt because i saw the ring around my ball. But it doesnt look like its going away or anything. It doesnt hurt and it dont bleed or really puss. its just red around my top ball and that ring. Im going to go to the doctors asap, but i was wondering if anyone could help me? please and thank you! i really dont wanna take it out. ):
Don't worrry. It's normal. If it's normal skin colour it's from where the ball is pressing into the skin. I've had mine pierced for 8 years, and I've recently got one again from the bar being changed to a slightly shorter one. Just make sure you bathe it and it should go. There's nothing wrong with it though. The redness is from it being different. It will go. xx
