Also known as antihelix piercing, a snug refers to a piercing passing via the antihelix of a person’s ear from his or her medial to the lateral surfaces. Snug piercing is not only a complicated process, but very painful also. If you opt to pierce your antihelix, you should be aware that the possibilities of infections in that place will be higher than in any other part of the ear.
Issues Associated With Snug Piercing
The pain resulted by snug piercing will likely last longer if the piercing process will not be performed by a pro. An infected piercing may result also if you will perform the process using an unsterilized needle.
If a person inserts in the pierced place a piece of jewelry that does not suit the snug, they will most probably experience swelling. You may notice bleeding if you develop a habit of pulling your earing regularly. A person might also witness weakness or fever
due to inflammation. Ensure you seek for the assistance of your doctor if you happen to experience any of these factors after snug piercing.
Tip #1: Being Careful While Sleeping
While sleeping, try to make sure you do not lie over the piercing. Make sure your hair does not disturb your jewelry while sleeping. It is also important that in the first two
weeks you avoid removing your jewelry since it can add insult to your injury
and cause inflammation.
Tip #2: Cleaning Your Sleeping Environment
Your sleeping environment should be cleaned more often when taking care of snug piercing. For instance, always ensure you clean your pillowcases so as to prevent and avoid bacterial infection.
Tip #3: Avoid Replacing Your Jewelry
Do not replace your jewelry for three weeks, unless your wound has properly healed.
Tip #4: Be Careful When Using Earphones and Cell Phones
Avoid also causing more harm to the wound by being careful while using your cell phone or earphones. You may have to use your speakerphone or listen in the ear without the piercing on it.
