Anyone want to pierce and squeeze the cartilage bump on my daith piercing?

Or would that be weird??

It's grim. Leaky. Flakey.

Requires intervention.

Yuk. What is a daith?

KingJoffreyLikesJaffaCakes Sat 30-Jul-16 18:28:45

Yuk? Yuk??

We're in Sporner Corner. You're not allowed to say yuk! This is our safe place.


It's one of the hard bits in the ear. The kind of ridge.

Is this the one that people are getting due to social media trending a myth that it cures migraines?

Anyhow, just clean it! If it's that pussy see your piercer...

Me me me

Sorry. I adore ear wax sporning but just can't do pus!
I know this makes me a failure as a sporner..

Your barred wink

For the avoidance of doubt the adjective is purulent, not pussy. No one wants to be squeezing anyone's pussy hmm

I'll do it joffers, can even offer a sterile needle. I'm at work tomorrow smile

Are you in Birmingham? [hopeful]

ShatnersBassoon Sat 30-Jul-16 19:03:01

God yeah, I will. What is it? Do I need to bring any tools?

heehaaw Sat 30-Jul-16 19:06:14

Mrsmorton I had no idea purulent was the word! It comes up a lot in my job & when I'm typing notes I always think "Pus-y? Pussy?!" then settle for "pus-like". This is v helpful!

Piercer said to rinse with salt water and squeeze out the pus.

Ear squeezing is hard. Can't see what you're doing.

In the West Country, btw.

ShatnersBassoon Sat 30-Jul-16 19:09:46

Have you got a hair grip? That would get in there.

FruitCider Sat 30-Jul-16 19:13:38

Where abouts in the West Country? I'm in the West Country and love a bit of gunk (but still think you should get proper advice)

I know grin but I'm not on nurse duty on here!

KingJoffreyLikesJaffaCakes Sat 30-Jul-16 19:23:04

In Trowvegas.

I've sought the advice. The advice is to squeeze!!

HawkingsMead Sat 30-Jul-16 19:24:43

Best advice EVER.

Trowvegas gringringringrin

Close but not close enough I'm afraid! Got a good friend that owes you a favour?

StillSmallVoiceOfCalm Sat 30-Jul-16 19:26:13

I'm within pus popping distance. I shall pop over in a mo.

KingJoffreyLikesJaffaCakes Sat 30-Jul-16 19:49:58

Bloody well hurts.
Going to have a drink then soak it and try the hair grip thing.
