What Is A Conch Piercing?
A conch piercing is situated in the biggest section of your ear cartilage, in one of two open areas separated by another ridge of cartilage that projects out between them. The lower of these two areas is the inner conch, and the upper section is the outer conch. Together they provide considerable surface area for a variety of body jewelry, so you can really get creative if you want to. As with many cartilage piercings, though, a little more healing time is generally necessary.
Some Healing Tips For Conch Piercings
You can expect a conch piercing to fully heal in anywhere from six months to a year, but there are a few things you can do to promote faster healing:
Try A Salt Soak: This is generally the most effective treatment for any cartilage piercing, and it’s totally safe.
Add Lavender Essential Oil: The addition of a very small amount of lavender to your salt soak will make it even more effective, because the lavender has excellent soothing properties.
Clean With Glycerin Soap: The soap is great for cleaning the outer portion of the piercing. For anything in the ear, it’s great for removing residues from shampoo, conditioner, and any other hair products you may use.
