So I have stretched ears 28mm or 29mm I forgot the actual measurement. I have had them out for almost a month and now when I play with them, they feel really sore for no reason. Does anyone know why this happens? It's weirding me out a little bit.

I find my lobes get a bit stiff and slightly sore if i massage them after a few days without jewellery. I have always assumed it's the tissue having bunched up tight, as after a few seconds of massage it loosens up again fine. In terms of discomfort it's mostly where there is a little scar tissue from when i had them scalpelled, so maybe scar tissue has something to do with it. You can get similar pain in other areas of scarring.

Maybe your ears want you to put jewelry back in? Wink

My real guess is because the collagen and elastic fibers are getting stronger and nerve impulses are sensitive.

Why have you had them out so long?

Oakbear, I think you're right about the scar tissue thing. I was looking at my ear and I could see some there. Which probably isn't good haha. Sommerset, I've had them out for so long because I wanted them to shrink down to the size below for work. Thank both of you guys for the help (:

You are welcome! Did they shrink? Irritating the tissue will help force them to heal to a smaller size if you need to make that happen.

IDK about that Oakbear dude!! He bites and has very sharp claws!CoolKissWink

I thought it was due to increased bloodflow that comes from not having jewellery in your lobes? :)

You can get a bit of sensitivity from blood returning if you are wearing tight jewelry, although that would probably be a sign it was too tight (so good job you are removing them!), but not after leaving them out for a month or so.
