So I have been stretching my conch's now for a few years from 1.6mm to at the minute 9mm. I have always stretched slowly and never skipped sizes, I use concave tapers and Gorilla Glass conch plugs to stretch. I have got a ring around one of my conch stretches (see picture attached, apologies for my bad quality!) which appeared a few days after my latest stretch to 9mm, Im not sure if this is a blow out or hypertrophic scarring as ive never had either. Im really not sure what it is - I was wondering if someone could help me out?
I have been taking good care of it, doing SSS twice daily (1/4 teaspoon sea salt to 1 cup of boiled, warm water) and have begun to add a camomile tea bag to the salt water solution every other day in the hope that that may also help.
There is no seeping or puss and no bleeding, i have no pain or discomfort im just trying to figure out what the ring is and how I may get rid of it! I have always worn glass in my conches and this is much more comfy for me.
