Prince Albert Problem (with photos)

I recently got a message from a man who was having some trouble with his Prince Albert piercing:

Thanks for the great site, and your book.

I got a PA 5 weeks ago, ¾” inch  captive ball stainless steal ring, 8g.  I am uncircumcised.  Placement etc. was fine, but it soon became clear that the ring was a wee bit too small in diameter and causing pain during erections.  On the advice of my piercer I waited a few weeks to have it changed, he felt it might mostly be initial swelling and he was reluctant to swap out jewelry too soon.  I eventually, at 3 weeks in, had the ring changed to a 7/8” which seems to be the perfect size. After-care throughout has been washing with mild soap once/day, and 2 or 3 sea-salt soaks per day. I also put a small dab of emu oil on after the soaks.

Problem: about a week ago I developed a bump along the edge of the  piercing hole.  It is not warm or red, looks like a small blister, no hint of puss or other fluids.  It is about 1mm thick, and goes around about ¼ of the circumference of the piercing. No signs of infection etc., but this "blister" is very sensitive, feels like being poked with a needle every time anything touches it.  Otherwise the PA is pain-free, but that one tiny bump is certainly hurting!

Possible complications is that I’ve had the flu for a few days, so my immune system is no doubt busy.  I’m also a cyclist and have been biking to work (the bus got too expensive).  While I did take two weeks off the bike after getting pierced and felt no pain or discomfort while cycling, I may have added insult to injury.

What do you think this painful little bugger is?  Other than the warm soaks and staying off the bike, any advice for getting rid of it, or at least making it less painful?

Thanks for your help!  I’d like Mr. Happy to stop being Mr. Ouchy!

My reply:

Fine Frenum, Good Guiche!

I received this great message from an old client who I'd pierced many years ago. It is so great to hear from people who really enjoy the piercings I've done for them!

Helped With A Frenum

I recently got a message from a Tribalectic Community friend:

I  wanted you to know that when I was thinking of getting a frenum piercing, I visited your website. I was sitting on the fence about getting the piercing. I bought a couple of your genital piercing video clips to see what exactly I could expect if I decided to go through with it. You made the experience look relatively painless, professional, & quick. Those videos (and your expertise) calmed my nerves and help me decide to go ahead and get it done. I got my piercing and have no regrets (fact is, I'm thrilled with it), so a big thank-you and hug from me.
My response: HI there, Oh that GREAT! Thanks so much for the positive feedback. I'm glad that I was able to be helpful to reassure you and support your decision and to get pierced. I saw the photo and your piercer left room for a Prince Albert, if you ever decide you want to get one.... uAngel Who did your piercing? Sounds like it must have been a good experience. I'm so glad! Heal well and enjoy, Elayne

Lost Jewelry

I got a question today that I hadn't been asked before:
Hi, I would be grateful if you could give me some advice regarding penis piercings. I have just realised that my boyfriends piercing has come off during sex.  i found the hoop part to it, but could not find the ball part. I would be grateful if you could offer me some advice as to what I should do next. Many thanks.
Hi, Is it possible that the ball was gone before you had sex and was never inside you? Even if the ball had been inside you at some point, it may have fallen out and gotten lost without your awareness. If a manual examination with your finger (or your boyfriend's finger) does reveal the missing jewelry and you have reason to believe it is inside you, or you feel stressed out over wondering, you may want to visit your gynecologist for a more thorough exam. It is extremely unlikely that the ball has gone far (for example into your cervix or uterus) as you would feel pain and cramping from a foreign object there. As they say, "What goes up, must come down" and that likely probably here as well. Let me know what happens! Angel
