Hey all,

I have one of these cushions that I'm not using:

It's the brown version rather than the pink one.

I bought it awhile ago and used a couple of times but ended up settling on another type of pillow with a hole in the middle so I could sleep on my fresh ear piercings.

This would work best sitting on top of another pillow, didn't work so well for me as I use a contoured pillow.

I'd rather give it to someone who might get some more benefit out of it than just giving it to an op shop. I'll chuck it in the wash before mailing it. Happy to send it anywhere in Australia for someone who'll use it :)

PM me if interested.

When I got mine, I got one of these pillows! It's a cute donut with a bite taken out of it, absolutely perfect for sleeping with new piercings!

I have had issues with the jewelry falling out and not being able to get it back in. Maybe keep a long stud handy just in case, and by the way, if that happens, it's so much easier to put the jewelry in backwards with the ball in the back until you can get to a piercer or learn to put it back yourself. I was late to work once before I figured that out!

Warm sea salt soaks twice a day are amazing, 7 months later I still can't sleep directly on it, donut pillow is a godsend, and keep the long initial jewelry for longer than you think you need. It swells up easy and quickly! It's all worth it though, I absolutely love conch piercings and I also have 1/2" first lobes, second lobes and a conch! Good choice! Love the blue!

That's great! I think you're getting downvoted because your link is bad (it doesn't load the product page on my computer), but it looks like you bought the CVS Sterile Saline Wound Wash, which is a 0.9% sodium chloride solution with no additives. That's the perfect concentration for piercings, so you're good to go!

If you ever get annoyed by how quickly the product sprays out, I really like the NeilMed Fine Mist Wound Wash. It has the same formula as the CVS wound wash, but dispenses in a fine mist that doesn't soak my whole ear.

As has been stated, no tea tree oil! Ditch the H2Ocean (too many ingredients) and get some wound wash from a local drug store (I use this one), it's sterile saline spray in a can. Spray both sides of the piercing once or twice a day. I personally let it air dry on my lobes, but you could gently dab it dry with a clean cloth or woven gauze.

If you don't know the jewelery type, I'd guess it's surgical steel. You could be allergic/sensitive to nickel, which is sometimes in surgical steel in small amounts. See a reputable piercer and get a new ring, titanium or niobium. They should be able to help you switch it out as well.

Current recommendation for aftercare I think is sterile saline. You can get a saline wound wash from a pharmacy but I like this it has the best stream (regular wound washes are too hard for me):

I've never been able to wear in-ear headphones; they're incredibly uncomfortable to me (regardless of piercings) and constantly fall out. So I use over-the-ear headphones instead. These are my favorite.

I don't yet have a daith, but for what it's worth, those over-the-ear headphones have been perfectly fine with my rook.

u/ALV-B · 3 pointsr/piercing

The saline spray I use is Stericlens which I initially brought from my piercer about a year ago now and I have since gone through 1 more can . It only has salt and water in the ingredients and can spray in any direction which is cool. But the nozzle it is really precise so you can direct the water flow. It comes in a big enough can that will last a few months

I find it hard buying saline spray in the UK in stores so if your piercers doesn't have them then I recommend stericlens. As for buying in boots and stuff look for something that is pure salt and water with no preservatives in the correct concentration which is 0.9% sodium chloride. I had a look on Boots and Superdrug and couldn't find anything with just that. I think you might need to ask over the counter for one specifically but buying from Amazon would be tonnes easier.

Hope this helps

Stericlens Spray 240mls

Im a stylist and keep a set of these on hand for clients who can’t get their ears wet. Seems like it would work well for you also.

u/Save_FerrisB · 1 pointr/piercing

No. Please use a piercing aftercare product such as H2Ocean or Neilmed.

I’ve used both products with great success, and most piercers will tell you to avoid soap and antiseptics for general aftercare.

Also, you should consult with your piercer with questions specific to your situation.

u/willfullyspooning · 1 pointr/piercing

No cotton! Just a saline wound spray, i really mean don’t touch it at all! I would switch to implant grade titanium, and if you don’t already have one, get a travel pillow to sleep on and put a pillowcase on it and change the pillowcase often. I got keloids, but they resolved over time. Hoops in any piercings can be tricky and will depend on your anatomy, they move around more and can irritate the piercing. I just sprayed mine with wound wash twice a day and didn’t touch it. Like seriously don’t touch it at all! If you have long hair make sure to keep it away from the piercing, and watch out for things like hats and headphones while it’s healing. this is kinda like the one I used

u/SampleOfNone · 5 pointsr/piercing

When all else failed we went the DIY route for our teenager and made something like this but hard shell ear protection for wrestling like this will work as well.

u/ProductiveThings · 1 pointr/piercing

> Organic alcohol is the primary ingredient in our Organic Hand Sanitizing Spray.

I was suggesting the liquid soap, like this one

u/idkmuchaboutalgebra · 3 pointsr/piercing

This NeilMed piercing spray is what I've always used, and I love it!

u/tessa-amy · 1 pointr/piercing

The best place to get sterile saline in the uk is amazon. My piercer sells stericlens, but I’ve bought it from amazon too, there’s a smaller can, but they’re a very similar price, so you might as well get the 240ml can.

It is better to avoid using cotton buds, but I occasionally use them to remove stubborn gunk after cleaning the piercing. I think the suggestion on here generally is to use something that’s less likely to leave fibres behind if you need to use anything.

I received a small bottle of Provon from my piercer. Plenty left over, too, for later piercings =)

u/mrsmiawallace00 · 2 pointsr/piercing
  • How much confidence they give you even though most everyone is unaware they exist. Also, if you're a girl, you can see them through your shirt/swimsuit, etc. a lot of the time. Band-aids or slight padding will hide them when necessary.
  • Clean them every day. Use antibacterial soap like this (Soap) in the shower to clean them. Keep the crusties off the jewelry. I found mine healed faster and easier w/ straight barbells.
  • It didn't hurt at all. It was the opposite of pain..................ifyaknowwhatimean...
  • The peircer advised me to get them both done the same day. I guess it does hurt most people pretty bad so there's fear you won't go back for the other. Also, 2 healing periods would suck.
  • No pain, no gain.
u/edmandarnditt · 1 pointr/piercing

This has happened to me with a few of my ear piercings. I get the piercing and there's no residual pain, so after a couple days, I feel like it's safe to sleep on. And I'm wrong. So then it feels bruised for a while.

For fresh ear piercings, you might want to get a neck pillow or a side sleeper so you can comfortably sleep on your side without mashing your ear into the pillow.

u/crystalswords · 3 pointsr/piercing

It looks irritated, rather than infected. Since the bleeding, have you noticed any other discharge? If it's white (pus), that's indicative of infection. If it's a yellowish color (usually hardens to a crust), that's lymph fluid, your body's way of cleaning the wound from the inside. If you're not sure if you slept on it, I advise getting a travel pillow to sleep on, with your ear in the hole to prevent sleeping on it. That would prevent further irritation from that standpoint. Also be mindful of bumping you ear for any reason, and try to avoid getting it snagged while wearing hats, brushing your hair, etc. Try your best to leave it alone, as cleaning it can sometimes further irritation. Any crush that may accumulate will eventually fall off on its own. You can try NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen) over Tylenol to help with the swelling as well, as long as it's not contraindicated for you.


Here's the donut pillow I still use, even though all my ear piercings are healed. I prefer this over a travel pillow because it's not so thick, and it has the perfect spot to lay it on your shoulder. Good luck!

u/Thegroovygrandfather · 2 pointsr/piercing

I have worn these ( every day for about two years and love them. They are silicone and manage to stick to your skin without any adhesive. I am not sure if a ring would interfere with this sticking process at all, but I would think they would still work. Let me know if you end up trying them because I've considered getting this piercing.

u/Singrgrl14 · 6 pointsr/piercing

You can do it on your right side. Just get a travel pillow or some kind of donut pillow to avoid sleeping on it :)

u/floraP0wer · -4 pointsr/piercing

posted what it looked like after i washed. couldn’t get all of it off but i tried

this is what i was using before i was told by reddit to not use it

u/SuperFancyMerman · 2 pointsr/piercing

This is the one you want. There is one that has copper in and there used to be a hypertonic one but this one is just salt and water. There is nitrogen but that's only the propellant and it's inert.

u/kimbrasplice · 1 pointr/piercing

Could use this but still be mindful it can still get bits of water in it.

u/Vauldr · 1 pointr/piercing

Like I said, only do salt spray/salt soaks. If the soap gets in that hole it's bad news.

This is what I use: NeilMed NeilCleanse Piercing Aftercare, Fine Mist, 6 Fluid Ounce

u/little_sae · 0 pointsr/piercing

I got mine a year ago, and had the same problem, also about 2-3 months after getting it. My biggest problem was how I cared for it: I started using [Spectro jel] ( The bump and pain went away after about a week of using it. I usually rub it on the area, leave it on for 30 seconds, and wash it off. I do the same with my nose screw. Now, I have no bump, discolouration whatsoever.
