  • Question About Daith Piercing

    Posted by tia3 on December 3, 2021 at 5:54 am

    So, I have three earlobe piercings in each ear, plus a cartilage piercing on one side. In that same side, I got a daith piercing back in July. It seemed to heal really well, and I was about to make my appointment to switch out jewelry and get the daith on the other side pierced. Then, something odd happened.

    I think what happened was the seam of the ring got turned and was inside the daith hole. I woke up and had a lot of aching and some sharp pains. That went on for a couple of days. Then, I was working, and the pain was kind of bothering me, so I went to move the ring around, and suddenly there was a tiny gush of liquid, followed by some blood. I think the seam of the ring pinched inside the hole and formed a little pustule. The sharp pain was immediately gone, and now I’m left with a bit of tenderness. Since then, I’ve been rinsing the ear twice a day with saline and making extra sure that the seam is outside the hole.

    My question is: Would it be better to wait longer to swap the jewelry? I’m looking to get a captive bead piece, which would negate the risk of the seam-side of the ring getting under the skin again, so to speak. TIA!

    Hey there,
    For your daith piercing I would recommend waiting until it is fully healed before swapping piercings. If it start hurting, definitely seek advice from your licensed piercer, as they know whether they should take the piercing out or not.
