How long will my forward helix piercing be sore?

I got my forward helix pierced on Saturday. It's definitely sore! I had soreness with my septum piercing, but mostly only when I touched it. My forward helix is sore if I smile and sometimes a little sore even when it's not being moved. How long should I expect this to last? It's not showing any signs of infection.

    Don’t worry, it’s probably not infected. Mine was VERY sore even when I didn’t touch it for a few days and it was sore when I touched it or lied on it it for weeks. Try to touch it as little as possible and don’t lie on it and it should subside soon. :)
