as of lately, my piercing have really been bothering me. They haven't bugged me this bad in a long time. And because they bug me, I start playing with them, leading to me playing with them subconsciously.
They're too close together - I already know that. I knew that from the start. I got them done professionally and they had been fine after healing, but I don't know what to do now. Any ideas? I think there's swelling, too, which makes them hurt more!
You're wearing really, REALLY shitty jewellery. While switching to a horseshoe or a CBR is a good idea, if you really want to keep wearing labret studs, you need to buy some made from titanium or surgical grade stainless steel. Downsizing them may help as well, but you need to be careful with how small you go.
