I’ve had my cheeks pierced for 3 days now. I knew they would swell but, I didn’t know it would be THIS bad. The bar is rubbing against my cheek and it’s causing a raw spot. The piercer that did it told me to take ibuprofen and it would help with the swelling. Also to keep ice chips around because, they can help help also.

My questions is, should I take them out. I’ve heard BAD stuff about them and someone even said that the ball tried to go through there cheek? Or can I just switch it to a bioflex bar as soon as possible?

Sounds like you might either need a longer bar or larger end on the inside. I healed mine with 7mm discs on the inside as it was WAY more comfortable than larger balls or normal size discs.

I would never suggest plastic (PTFE/bioflex/bioplast) in your cheeks, I tried them a long time ago (once healed) and every ‘brand’ that I tried just broke the back disc off - not fun when you are out and about!

Ice does help with swelling, so does cold saline soaks and anti-inflammatories (nurofen+/ibuprofen).
