well it is more fleshy than the lobe i suppose and so more prone to infection, try using soft anti-bacterial wet wipes on it in between the cleaning.
I've had mine done. Took 6 weeks to heal, some could take longer though. I have had cartilage piercings go wrong. You've only got trouble when a bump starts forming near it. Very difficult I know, just don't knock it. Your piercing is a foreign object and doing anything to remind your body it is there will start a rejection process. No wipes, no cotton wool and no ear buds. Squirt your cleaning solution on it and only turn them in the shower.


If you do get a bump eventually, thats another long winded answer but Ill look out for it.
it can take anywhere between 2/12 months to fully heal.

Wash with warm water at least 3 times a day, and use a non iodized sea salt
Am I the only one who had to google "TRAGUS" to know what the hell it was?
No shadowman.

I thought it was somewhere down below. lol

Google makes me look good!
I had to look in the dictionary, shadowman.

It did not say why on earth anyone would wanrt to inflict themselves to this.
Because it looks pretty. Although, I was surprised at the fleshy comment. Mine is rock solid.
please enlighten me where is the tragus?????

I have lead a sheltered life!!!
And me !!
My husband has his tragus pierced, it healed in no time. He just sprayed it with Savlon antiseptic wound wash a few times a day for the first few weeks and hes never had any problems with it at all.

For anyone who doesnt know what it is http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/ thumb/b/b3/175px-Tragus_piercing.jpg
I loved mine but had to take it out cause it got infected, as Goodsy said it got a lump beside it. My piercer gave me hell for not cleaning it properly lol so make sure you do
