Tragus piercing: The tragus is the small cartilage of your outer ear, just in front of the opening of the ear canal. Much like the earlobe, this area is not that sensitive to pain, but it is slightly more sensitive than the ear lobe. The ear canal, on the other hand, is very sensitive to pain. I would caution against piercing this area as it puts the cartilage at risk for infection, called chonditis. ...Read more

I had my tragus pierced a moth ago I clean it regularly, a red bump has appeared. It oozes puss when insleep on it but doesn't really hurt, isit normal?
Definitely not: It's possible you have a localized infection from the procedure that punctured through skin and cartilage. This is the body's reaction to that -it is trying to clear out the germs. The 'foreign body' which is whatever earring or jewelry that you have in there makes it harder for the body to 'clear' the germs, because the earring actually helps protect the bacteria. Try a dry string, changing daily ...Read more
