Home More advice Beauty & Style

monday I decided to gauge my ears. going from a size of a small lip ring to a 6. instead of just jumping striaght to a six, I went to spencers for advice the man gave me a taper going to a size six. He told me that when I get in the shower push the taper in a little further at a time but only to when my ear felt a little pressure and stop. Well at the time I just wanted to get it done. My left ear was really sore and tender so I didnt force it, as of my right ear it was fine so I tried to force it through... That was tuesday. I woke up this morning and my left ear was swollen and still is. Theres no puss no fever just swollen. All I need to know is if its infected? how long it will be swollen? What to do? keep it in? take it out? I've been putting sea salt and anti bacterial soup on it and moving it around like I was told... I just need to know what to do? Any advice?
