    Is it normal for your cartilage piercing to become crusty and swollen?
    I had my cartilage pierced on Tuesday with a needle at a proper piercing shop. I have been washing/cleaning it 3 times a day with a sea salt soak. It isn't sore until you touch it but it is getting a bit swollen and crusty. Im just wondering if this is normal, plus it isn't red all of the time it is just red when I knock it or after I clean it... Normal?

    It is bound to get tender; you are doing everying correctly and keep on doing until it isn't tender. It is good it isn't red.
