Description
I was wandering if the white ring of skin around the hole is a normal occurrence. I pierced it myself at 18g, stretched it after a month-ish to 10g using a taper (went through the in-between gauges in less than 3 days, but I didn't "force it") (which is what I'm wearing in the pic). I feel slight discomfort on the outside of the hole, too. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might post in the comments. S

Hi, is it a little bit sore and a burning feeling?
You have to remind yourself to clean the pa very often.
You can do it by salt soaking.
