So this is my first catilage piercing, i got it done Sept 15th and it was sore to touch for the first couple days then about 3 days ago it started to get more sore and swollen. I did go to Dollywood and rode a couple rides and some things hit it while i was there, i cleaned it with saline the moment i left. I was putting saline on it twice a day and stopped and started using sea salt soak for 5 min. My question is, is swelling and real tenderness normal for such a fresh piercing? Im trying to not be paranoid.
