I have a lump in my earlobe and I'm not sure what to do. I have had these before, but always in a piercing hole, so could be easily squeezed out of the hole. This is between two holes and will not squeeze no matter how hard i try.

My earlobe is throbbing and painful and I just want it gone now. Getting to the point of jabbing it with a needle as it's affecting my sleep. It has been there for three days now.

As a committed sporner i am frustrated with this as there has been no glorious explosion, no beautiful bursting loveliness, just pain. Help?

I'll get dp to take a better pic when he gets back from the shop and I'll also video any popping attempts.

Definitely time for a boiled needle ( if it were my ear anyway )

WhoTheFuckIsSimon Sun 17-Apr-16 07:52:57

I would stick a needle in it and squeeze.

Hmm I will have to actually source a needle as I don't sew. Ever. Anything else that might do it if you aren't the sewing type?

Have you bathed it in really hot water? Do it 3 or 4 times then see what happens.

Emergency phonecard to dp at the shop to ask him to find a travel sewing kit. It's only a little tesco but you never know they might have one.

How hot are we talking? Am I supposed to melt the ear off or just make it feel cosy?

Safety pin? Sterilised first, of course.

flanjabelle Sun 17-Apr-16 08:00:14

Erm. I don't have a safety pin either. Right if dp can't find a needle then I'll go out to the proper shop once they open and get one. Can I use a proper sterilising solution for it? I have some left over from dds bottle age.

That looks glorious smile looking forward to the results!!

flanjabelle Sun 17-Apr-16 08:09:16

I'm just crossing my fingers that dp finds a needle. Cba to go to the proper shops. He should be back soon.

I went to the GP with this years ago, thinking the back of my earring had gone in. They (GP and nurse) put in a local anaesthetic (which spurted out of the other holes in my ears) and dug around for ages. Never found the back of the earring (I found it in my bed). It calmed down after a few days and the lump disappeared. Sorry for disappointing, non-sporny ending sad

He has one!! Apparently I have to let him eat breakfast first hmm

I'm not a sporner.
Klaxons don't usually get my attention.
But I want to see.
What's happening to me?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 17-Apr-16 08:16:38

Wave the needle through a flame of a match to sterilise it.

flanjabelle Sun 17-Apr-16 08:19:28

That will do! Good job dp. Just a warning, dp is not a sporner, not at all. He is going to be utterly grossed out while filming but he has agreed to do it.

Fan bloody tactic start to a Sunday morning

Ohb0llocks Sun 17-Apr-16 08:21:05

Junosmum Sun 17-Apr-16 08:21:12

Ooh, looks juicy. Make sure you document the popping.

flanjabelle Sun 17-Apr-16 08:21:39

FILMING!!! I am delighted.

flanjabelle Sun 17-Apr-16 08:22:25

June I am on it don't you worry. Just to check, how do you post a video on here? I can always take stills from it, but that's never quite as good.
