Hey all. I am currently at an 8g and would like to go up to a 6g when my holes are ready. Iv'e been at an 8 now for about a month. The only problem I'm seeing is that the skin inside of my ears look REALLY red. There has never been pain, swelling bleeding or pus in my stretching process. Is the redness normal? Is it safe to go up to a 6g soon?

My other question is that I have 6g tapers ready to go for when I do stretch up. But it looks like a BIG jump...is that going to cause a blowout jumping up that much even though it's one size? I know my cousin said that once you hit a certain size, the jumps start getting bigger. Is that true? Can I get a 7g to "lessen" the big jump from 8 to 6?

What kind of jewellery do you wear in your ears? And what material are they made out of? It looks like your ears are having a reaction to the jewellery.

And you could get in between sizes for tapers if you feel like the next size up looks a little too big......better safe than sorry. Just make sure they are stainless steel tapers...almost everything else is junk and could increase your rise of a blowout or other problems.

it looks like some sort of benign reaction to something, possibly the metal in the jewellery (this is VERY normal when using steel because of the nickel, which is rarely dangerous, but might cause micro-alergies like this) or some sort of product that you use on them (think emu oil, tea tree oil, ointments, whatever, not everyone reacts the same way to these products)
