I'm currently at 5/8ths. I have attached lobes, so I planned on stopping at this size. Well, after sizing up... about a week later I noticed the back of my left lobe was sore. I figured it was from sizing up, no biggie. Then it kept hurting, so I asked SO to look at it and he said it was scabbing. Er? Okay... so I kept cleaning it, making sure it wasn't irritated, blah blah blah. Then I bought different plugs... thinking it was the silicone that was irritating my ear, but that didn't help. The back of the plug is indenting on the back of my lobe. I think it's because my lobes are so little (because they're attached).
^ the bottom of my ear.. SO pulled my lobe up to get a better picture, but when my lobe is down... that part is right next to the side of my head. So I put in some new plugs that are longer.. gonna see if that helps.
SO says he thinks I'll have to size down. For one, because I didn't have an issue until I went up to this size. For two, my lobes are thin.
Any advice? I know this is a long shot, but figured I'd try.
