Question #24449

My stretched ear lobes are turning purple..why?

I have my ears stretched to 1" and have been at this size for over two years. I took a shower earlier, so naturally i took my tunnels out before I got in. When I took them out, i noticed that the inside of one of them was purple. Its only a part of the lobe, about half inch in length. I thought it was a bruise...

You most likely destroyed the blood supply to part of your ear. This is just one reason that you don't put 1 inch holes into your body. Seems like common sense to me.

It's mold.

If you have changed the jewelry recently, it could be from that.
