Earlobe piercings are the quickest to heal. They typically take about 1 to 2 months to fully heal. Cartilage piercings elsewhere on your ear will take longer to heal. It may take up to 6 months or even 1 year before a helix or tragus piercing is fully healed.
Likewise, people ask, how do you know when your earlobe piercing is healed?
Signs that a Piercing is Healed:
- The discharge has completely ended. Understand that there are period when it will cease during healing, so never use discharge as the only sign of the piercing be healed.
- The edges of the piercing holes are smooth and pull inward. …
- The jewelry is loose and moves some what freely.
Furthermore, how can I make my earlobe piercing heal faster?
To speed things up, clean the piercing every day with mild soapy water. Don’t irritate the skin around the piercing and avoid reopening the wound, which could slow down healing time. Give the tissue around the piercing plenty of time to heal before you change the jewelry.
What is the quickest healing piercing?
The fastest healing are the inner labia (4-6 weeks), clitoris and/or hood (4-6 weeks), fourchette (6-8 weeks) and the Princess Albertina (4-6 weeks). The longest are the outer labia (3-6 months) and Christina (6-9 months).
During the inflammatory phase of healing, the permeability of the vessels increases, permitting fluid to accumulate in the tissue around the wound. This is when you may start to experience the signs of healing such as redness, soreness, drainage that is clear/white-ish in color, and swelling.
After the first few days your body will excrete lymph as it begins to form the fistula inside your piercing. This lymph ‘crust‘ will likely collect on the jewelry or around the piercing. Do not pick at it. Piercings do tend to swell slightly — some more than others — during healing.
While some people have been able to stop regular cleanings after four weeks, it’s safest to go for a full 8 weeks before you stop your twice-daily cleanings. This gives your new piercings plenty of time to heal properly and decreases the chance of painful infections.
Pain and Healing Time
Plus, if you are getting the piercings at the same time, it’s common for the second piercing to hurt a bit more than the first, as your body is still attempting to recover. “Each individual has their own pain tolerance,” says Audri Siple of Get Stabbed Piercing.
