so here's my "problem" i've been having two ear piercings since mid February (one among them is a cartillage one; an helix piercing) and i've been turning on the side to sleep as a habit and have been hurting my ear and it seems to be taking ages to heal... any suggestions? i've started to apply saline solution and use antibiotic ointment to it... and it has created some kind of bump (here is a pic above to show where is an helix piercing located)

I have a lot.
Cartilage ones take usually a good year. Every one of mine has.
They've taken longer than nipples and high nostrils, which are known to take a while.
They really are the hardest things to heal. Ever.
AND DONT PUT ANTIBIOTIC OINTMENT ON IT. Thats the last thing your piercer would recommend.
Just keep with the saline and some ibuprofen. Ice it if you want. But dontttt put stuff in it.
And that bump, I get those with every piercing. They're like a blood blister. Just inflammation. Just let it go away on its own.1
