Earrings caused bruising and bleeding

Joined Oct 5, 2007
I got my ear(lobes) piercing about 6 weeks ago. All was good until I decided to change them a few days ago to slightly bigger ones. I left my other oens in forthe full 6 weeks. I had my big ones in and they'd hurt like a !$*$% to sleep on. I just took them out because felt like the back was fastened too tight.When I took them out, they bled slightly and were a bit swollen. The left ear was mildly bruised, as it was fastened tighter.

Is this normal or am I @%##+@.

did u ever take out the smaller ones occasionally to clean??? cuz if u didn't then this would happen when u switch out to larger ones.

No I didnt take them out to clean them, but I would clean the area while it was still in.

Do you think the blood and bruising is because it was fastened to tight, or am I infected.

Okay I hope they're alright

I sleep on my left ear too, so maybe that's why they are more *@*$$$ than my right

I just put alcohol on the earing and cleaned my ear lobes, and stuck em back in

Is it bad that it hurt my left ear when I put it back in?

uhh its not suppose to hurt bro...i would just take them out and let them head/close and get it repierced...my ear got infected once and it was not a prettysight. Healed pretty quick from what i remember...but then again, this was years ago.
if it swells/feels hot/turns red, take em out.
