Hey all - I just wanted to add for the OP, that you may want to try tea tree oil (100% pure) along with the salt mix treatment. It can be purchased in lots of places, most commonly from the drug store.
I have used it many many many times on... well... piercings that heal slowly. It's great for promoting the healing process.
PLUS, it's a natural antiseptic and helps with inflammation.
After your salt mix treatment, dab a tiny bit of the tea tre oil on the outside with a clean q-tip.
A little bit goes a long way.
I DO NOT
recommend moving the jewelry while healing.
Body piercings heal from the inside, out.
Moving and twisting the jewelry will only hinder healing, which can cause infection.
BTW - I am a professional body piercer... and if you want more info or help, PM me and I'll gladly assist!
