Hi there,

I’ve had what could possibly be termed as helix piercings, but are really more orbitals from where they are situated (the flat part of the ears, but circling the rim)

In any case, it’s been two years, and they still give me trouble. In the summer it’s just fine, and I never have any problems with it, but in the winter, every time the snow comes down, I find my ears take a beating, and they grow bumps and are painful.

Is there possibly a way for me to protect my ears, or should I just do sea salt soaks like I normally do?

You mean outer conch piercings ;)

The only thing you can do, really, is keep your lugs warm. Woolly hats, ear muffs.. whatever it takes. Warm seasalt soaks will help but prevention is way better than cure, so keep ‘em toasty.

  2. oh yes, it’s so important to keep ur ears warm… one of my stretched lobes has been acting up as well and it must be due to the mean icy wind and freezing cold we have here right now… sucks! but -> that’s a good reason to go and buy a nice new woollen cap or something ;)

  3. You could also try finding some glass or organic jewelry during the colder months. These materials seem to be nicer in the cold compared to surgical steel.

  4. Hats with earflaps are wonderful.
