I finally got my eyebrow piercing last year (what a joyous day) and clumsy clogs that I am... I tore it in May this year -.-
My piercer told me they're usually never the same again after you 'injure' them.
But I was hopeful that it would heal as well as it did when I got it, and I cleaned it EVERYDAY. For a while it seemed fine, but recently it kept getting inflamed and infected.
So I started a regimen with a saline soak, Chloramex (
it), Bactroban occasionally, and Comfrey Ointment.
It was almost healed! No inflammation, nothing!
Then it got all inflamed and infected again.
So I did everything I could and used some alcohol swabs... Guess that was my big mistake since I'm on Oratane... which equals super sensitive skin. It looked horrible! Like a festering sore o.o I felt like a circus freak in the mall, honestly people - one would swear no-one ever saw an infected red thing >.>
So I took the barbell out
But then, when I decided I won't give up, my barbell fell and landed...
next to the corpse of a fly
Needless to say... It's a week later and my scar is looking much better (hurrah for Comfrey Ointment), but I suspect I'll have a red spot there forever. Mew.
But I'm going to talk to my piercer soon about getting another one o.o
