Apadravya (Male Genital )Piercing with Hypertrophic Scarring
November 22nd, 2012
I received a some photos and quetions from a man who got an apadravya piercing
My name is P. and i am from Germany.
I am very confused right now because of my Apadravya and wanted to know, if you could be so kind to say me, what i can do.
I got it done at the 31 August in 2012.
After a few stretchings i am now at 2.4 mm with a length of 25mm.
About 3 weeks after i got the piercing there was some tissue growing in front of my Piercing and i tried to make it go away by sticking a needle in it.
Now the tissue is still there. It is dead, so i have no feeling there and it is very hard.
I wanted to ask another piercer what i could do to make it go away but she said, that the real problem would be, that my Apadravya is way to near the tip of my penis and that i should take it out because it will definately migrate.
I am very desperate now and wanted to ask you if this is true and if it is not, if you know what i can do to make this tissue go away.
Thank you very much in advance
Yours sincerely, P.
Thanks for your message and the photos.
I've marked the photo of your penis with a more "traditional" placement for an apadravya piercing.
It would appear that you have some hypertrophic scarring there. There is some chance that it is caused by the unusual placement. This page of my site explains some options you can try (assuming you're happy with the location of your piercing).
I've had some success with a new product I've personally
tried on my own ear cartilage scar tissue. It is a silicone disc that you would add onto the barbell and keep pressed snugly against the piercing 24/7. If the disc was tight enough on the bar post, it might not matter that you have the extra length on the bar. But it is important that the silicone disk provide continuous pressure against the scar tissue. I think it is worth a try if you intend to keep the piercing.
Take care and if you have additional questions, feel free to ask.
