Okay, so I've had a nasty bump by my inner conch, due to too-long jewelry. So, tonight I started to try to do the hydrogen peroxide method.
I wet down a qtip with hydrogen peroxide and held it against the bump. It started sizzling right away, so I thought "Hey neat, it must be working!" I took the qtip away to see what was happening, and it was bright red and raw looking. I put I clean, dry qtip against it, and when I took it away it was bloody!
I got nervous and stopped, because I had never heard that it bled. Has anyone else done this method? Is it supposed to bleed? It didn't hurt at all, and right now it just burns a tiny bit.
Here is picture - not very good, sorry. It's not really this red. Just tone down the red, like 50%. I'm not sure what the hell happened with the coloring in this photo.
Just reassure me that I didn't just break my ear.
