It"s been a week since I got my cartilage pierced. Almost healed.
OK, not completely, tad red, but almost in a sense that there is no more pain. Not hurting like it was hurting in its first 2 days. I had to slept straight, because both cratilage are pierced so changing side while sleeping caused pain.
Good thing it did not swell at all. I reckon it is gonna take couple of week to be fully healed. There are different timing of healing for different piercing. Some times it take 2 weeks to 6 months. Actually my nose took some 5 to 6 months. Well, it also depends on how you are taking care of it.
I used – Polyfax ointment instantly after I got them. My piercer advised me to use mustard or coconut oil. Over here they usually suggest that, though I am not much into desi totkas, I have used this ointment in my previous ones, and believe me, it always worked. So with pain killer on first two days and Polyfax, you can survive with any kinda piercing.
Also don't try to fuck it so much, like fingering it and touching to know how it is, and don't try to move the stud, or ring for at least 3 days, after that it will be moving by it self.
There are also some very good cleaning solutions easily available in drug stores for cleaning them. So use them !
I want on Helix, and on Tragus too, but not now. Right now, this is it. Now I have total six.
On both ear lobs, on Conch, and this one on Cartilage.
Being a Pakistani female, this ear, nose piercing is petty normal thing.
Till my mom era nose pricing was just for married women. It was sign for them "she is married "and very few unmarried used to have them. However, now, almost every female who is young adult has her nose pierced. It is more a fashion, and trend mixed with culture. In the rural area, there is no such married thing, you are a girl, you are pierced.
