My ear hurts. A lot. I think the piercer was a little too quick on the draw with that taper, and must've ripped my cartilage a little. I've been putting antibiotics on it at night, and it feels ok when I wake up, but during the day it's supersensitive. I can't tell if it's infected or not, so I'll just keep treating it like it is. My immune system's pretty good so hopefully my ear will submit like the bitch it is in a few days.
