    Give it about four weeks. Keep it clean to avoid infection. During the period of healing, it gets easily irritated, so after about three weeks, if it is healing correctly, the lack of the itching sensation should indicate that it is close to healed up.

    It will usually take six months-ish to settle down. A good thing to look out for is when you stop getting crusties on it, but at 6 months it’s still not healed all the way – I mean it could take a year before you can leave the jewellery out for a while over a few minutes.
