I've had a helix piercing that has been struggling to heal, since my piercer decided to pierce it with a hoop. I put this into my ear and the piercing is doing so much better. The irritation bumps that had been there for 8 months went away within a day and it is not irritated anymore. The jewelry is nice and simple, it is good for a healing piercing or if you wanted to buy a simple back up. Will purchase another one at some point!
