Daith piercings: how bad is the pain and what are the risks?
We don’t want to lie to you – the stinging and healing process can be painful. Since the piercing is pierced with pressure through a thick, firm piece of cartilage in the ear, it can be quite pinching. Healing also takes longer than many other piercings, that is, up to six months.
This means that you run the risk of it turning on quickly and really nasty if you don’t care about it and also play with it. If the inflammation goes so far that the area around the puncture canal becomes swollen, the piercing should be removed and replaced with a longer rod if necessary. Only in this way and with more care, the healing can continue without problems.
Myth: does daith piercing help with migraines?
Finally, we want to clarify a question that is often read in relation to daith piercing: Can piercing, once healed, really help against pain and migraines? It is said to have this miraculous effect because it is located directly at an acupuncture site on the pinna. When pressure is applied or when this point is punctured, the brain sends more pain-relieving messenger substances to the body, which should also relieve headaches.
However, there is no scientific study to support this assumption. The German Migraine and Headache Society even warns against daith piercing as a remedy for headaches because there is no evidence and the risk of inflammation would be too high.
